The weather is warming up, and that means it’s time to fire up the pit and get grilling! Grilling is real quick, doesn’t leave many dishes, makes cooking for a crowd easy, and enhances tastes making for a phenomenal meal. Even better, grilling is one of the leanest ways to cook.

Summer’s special moments

With the summer weather growing warmer every day, the time is right to enjoy the unique pleasures of the season: more time with our children, mellow jazz, family picnics, reunions and vacations.

The Beauty You Create

I take great pleasure in sharing with you a reaffirmation of the beauty that lies within all of us. Whether natural, enhanced or created, beauty is a demonstration of self-love — which in turn acts as a foundation strong enough to support all you do.

Keeping the Huntridge Theater legacy alive

During the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, African-Americans were barred from many entertainment venues in Nevada, because of segregation practices that ruled commercial and social interaction in the state.

On Oct. 10, 1944, one venue opened against the tide of that era’s discriminatory practices. Located on Las Vegas’ Charleston Boulevard, the Huntridge Theater was the state’s first nonsegregated theater. With the site listed on the National Register of Historic Places, partners Joey Vanas, Michael Cornthwaite and Rehan Choudry are working to revitalize, redevelop and reopen the legendary venue. Vanas spoke to Las Vegas Black Image to discuss his team’s vision.

Making a big difference

Nevada reportedly has the nation’s highest rate of domestic violence homicide. Longtime Las Vegas resident Leatha Hubbard’s newly formed nonprofit organization is setting out to reverse that sad statistic — by reaching out to those most directly affected by it.
That organization, Silent Whispers, is committed to purchasing transportation, food vouchers and hygiene packets for victims and survivors of domestic violence.

Massaging, the truth

Many of our children are enjoying their summer break from school, but I want to remind mothers to also take a break and treat themselves to a massage. In fact, July is the perfect month to do so: one week (July 14-20) is designated as “Everybody Deserves a Massage Week.”
