Good things come when women lead

Las Vegas Black Image publishers Charles Tureaud and Kimberly Bailey Tureaud

This issue of Las Vegas Black Image celebrates Viola Davis, who will soon be seen on the silver screen starring in “The Woman King,” a visually stunning film based on the real-life history of an army of female warriors in Africa.

Speaking of women at the helm: we’re also honoring the Raiders’ Sandra Douglass Morgan, who recently became the first Black woman president of an NFL team. And it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to another outstanding leader in Joanne Wesley, who fought for civil rights and social justice in the Historic Westside and throughout the Las Vegas Valley. May she rest in peace.

Las Vegas Black Image Magazine is inviting all to join us in beautiful La Jolla, Calif. for AT THE BEACH, the annual Las Vegas Black Image Health & Wellness event set for September 23-25. There will be ongoing activities: bonfires, hiking, massages, yoga and more. Call (702) 615-8216 for more information or email us at

Mark your calendar: the 5th Annual Las Vegas Caravan for Mammogram will take place on Saturday October 15, with Grand Marshal Dr. Annette Mayes once again inviting Black women to meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of her Las Vegas All Women’s Care office at 700 Shadow Lane — where we will decorate our cars in pink and black before caravaning down the Las Vegas Strip in parade formation at 10:30 a.m. Participation is free, and you can call (702) 615-8216 for your signup form.

Once again, we thank all of our contributing writers who make Las Vegas Black Image exciting, informative and motivational. That also goes for our executive publishing team, graphic designer, editor, photographers, whose excellence is unmatched each and every month.

Thank you again for allowing us to serve and publish once again for YOU!
