BY ALICIA TAYLOR Yes, you read that title right. I said credit — not cash — is king! We’ve all heard the mantra, “it’s better to spend someone else’s money.” The reason it’s so overused, is because it’s true. So how do you gain access to the ever-elusive “other people’s money?” Credit! Credit is important for so many reasons. Let’s face it: most of us can’t pay cash […]

BY LOUIE OVERSTREET I don’t need a crystal ball or tea leaves to make this prediction: If you are poor in America, 2018 will be another dangerous and distressing year for you to catch hell. Folks, if you didn’t know, the Republicans have a “Take Back America Plan.” It requires them to: 1. Keep the poor disorganized 2. Dehumanize the poor in subliminal ways […]

BY CAPUCINE HOLMES The Urban Chamber of Commerce celebrates a legacy of prosperity and growth. The room was filled with optimism as more than 200 people descended on Green Valley Ranch for the Urban Chamber of Commerce’s State of the Chamber & Board Installation Luncheon. Small business owners, corporate executives, elected officials, community leaders and more came from across Nevada to celebrate a more than 30-year history of developing economic growth.

How Is That Working Out For Us?

BY LOUIE OVERSTREET My question is in reference to the small (not even) minority/female business participation in the development of the Las Vegas Raiders’ $2 billion stadium. The answer to my question is, “It ain’t happening!” Participation by minority/ female enterprises on this project is about as likely as a black developer out of New York City redeveloping the old Moulin Rouge site — some 62 years after […]

BY CAPUCINE HOLMES It was like stepping into a time machine on a recent evening at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino: You get on the elevator and push a button for the Belmont Ballroom — and when the doors open, you step into a Studio 54-style reception. Afros, bell bottoms, psychedelic colors, rose-colored sunglasses, and groovy music were all part of the ambience at the Today for Tomorrow Gala […]

Standing up for Las Vegas’ historic black community

November 7, 2017 by  
Filed under Community

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 […]
