I remember performing on the Westside on MLK and Owens for the Black Unity event. There were no problems that night.

Alain Mobley Jr.
Being on the KCEP 88.1 FM radio show, “Enterprising People,” with my daughter.

The election of President Obama. I was living in Las Vegas, and it represented all the struggles that black people in Vegas and all other cities went through.

Listening to Vegas icon Bob Bailey speak about Las Vegas history — including the Moulin Rouge.

The riots in 1992.

A great memory is when I performed three rap songs with my group, Dope Intro, at the Moulin Rouge. Thank you to Wayne Waters and Mr. David Bowie. May you rest in peace.
