Before integration, “The Westside” was home for African-Americans in Las Vegas. Longtime residents still reminisce about the prosperity and opportunity that defined the neighborhood in the middle of the last century — and the presence of so many churches has helped preserve a newer generation’s relationship to the historic community. Still, many still wonder why economic development and beautification that has touched communities across Nevada […]
