The power in wisdom, justice and representation

Las Vegas Black Image Publishers Charles Tureaud and Kimberly Bailey Tureaud

We begin this month with a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms holding families together — and going beyond the call to make sure loved ones are safe, happy, and healthy. In this May edition of Las Vegas Black Image, our neighbors share words that “Mama Used to Say” in the Community Speaks feature. We appreciate everyone who submitted those treasured words of wisdom from their mothers.

Our cover celebrates Michael B. Jordan’s new film, “Without Remorse” — which is a must-see on Amazon. Along with Michael, we honor Lauren London, who plays his wife in the movie and propels the drama and suspense.

We thank Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford for offering his powerful words on the conviction of Derek Chauvin, who murdered George Floyd in cold blood for all to see.

It is with great pride that we introduce Ilana Atkins, a Black woman conductor who makes history with every note that she guides, every melody that she sways. Also making a tremendous mark is artist and Las Vegas Arts Commissioner John Trimble — who spearheaded the “Queen of the Arts” sculptures at the entrance of the West Las Vegas Arts Center. He details the motivation for this landmark in the Historic Westside community, which serves to honor culture while beautifying the area.

The many faces of positive black images are featured again in our Photos of the Month. The love and smiles shared will add to the joy in your heart.

Our contributing writers again bring all the information, motivation, and education that will enhance our readers’ lives with conscious thought. Also, we thank our wonderful graphic artist James Carter and editors that deliver excellence each month.

A special thank-you to all our advertisers — they are passionate about supporting positive actions and thoughts in a world that needs them in abundance. Las Vegas Black Image will always be dedicated to enhancing, educating and stimulating a balanced and authentic perspective on Black life.
