Letter from the Publishers

Las Vegas Black Image Publishers Charles Tureaud and Kimberly Bailey Tureaud

We are very proud of this collector’s edition of Las Vegas Black Image, which features exclusive photos from the historic inauguration of Vice President Kamala Harris.

This issue’s theme is “Promising Future,” which is strong and sustainable within our young people — because once our youth gain wings of hope from the elders, their flight is guaranteed.

The flight was encapsulated in the words that flowed from the mind of Amanda Gorman at the inaugural, and we highlight her genius in this issue.

Our Black History tribute is in honor of the forebears who live long enough to grace their family’s development. They have the guiding hands that embrace children’s hearts in those moments when parents cannot be there, and we salute the grandparents upholding the value of “keep on keeping on.”

We also put a spotlight on the Cox Communications Honors — for those in our community whose generosity, longevity, and integrity touch so many lives.

Leaders are readers — and in that spirit, we welcome new Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Director Kelvin Watson.

We are delighted to showcase this year’s Las Vegas Black Image honorees in the areas of technology, education, health, economic development, government, and the art of dance. Join us in the celebration for these honorees who serve as excellence personified.

We also want to thank our loyal Las Vegas Black Image contributing writers, who use their gift with words to uplift the entire Southern Nevada community.
