Letter from the Publishers

We are kings and queens

Las Vegas Black Image Publishers Charles Tureaud and Kimberly Bailey Tureaud

Spring is upon us, and we are grateful to be moving closer to our regular routines while staying safe.

As far as popular culture, there is no more welcome symbol of a return to normal than the success of “Coming 2 America” — which brings a beloved cast of characters back into our lives, and reminds us how Eddie Murphy became one of the biggest stars on the planet.

It is such an honor to feature Dr. Bernard Moore and the story of his great, great, great grandfather, Tal Jones — who left a Black oil legacy for all the generations to come. What the story also teaches is that anything of value is worth fighting for — encouraging us all to stay woke and prepared to protect and create generational wealth. Giving knowledge in the areas of diversity and equity is UNLV Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Barbee Oaks — who is retiring from the university, but still available to consult and share wisdom on how to build success through inclusion.

In this April edition, we honor the excellence of our children with the return of “Icons-In-Class” — celebrating 9-year-old Meadow Brown as she gives positive messages of inspiration in her art because she hopes “to make others happy.”

Thank you to our social media family for participating in this month’s “Community Speaks” on an issue that still has people buzzing long after the credits rolled on the annual Grammys telecast.

Las Vegas Black Image is your magazine — and we treasure all of our contributing writers who bring information, perspectives, and encouragement into our lives. As the nation is reminded that Black Lives Matter, we are happy that what some treated as a slogan is becoming a call to action.

We wish all of you positive movement, love, and blessings that lead toward ALL of your dreams. Share your thoughts with us by email at
