Las Vegas Black Image has always showcased the best of Black America — and this month, our cover story celebrates Joe Louis, one of the most transcendent heroes of the 20th century. On the eve of a special honor for the history-making and barrier-breaking fighter, we sat down for an exclusive interview with his daughter, Joyce Barrow Henderson — a longtime Las Vegas resident who reveals the man behind the timeless legend of the Brown Bomber. 

Elsewhere in this edition: 

  • In recognition of Mother’s Day, Community Speaks asks readers how they emulate Mom in their everyday lives. 
  • May is Lupus Awareness Month, and we share information that expectant mothers and those planning a pregnancy should know about a disease that afflicts a disproportionate number of African-Americans. 
  • OppsWell CEO Marilyn Booker is spotlighted in our newest installment of Black Excellence — as she works to ensure contracting opportunities for members of the community. 
  • The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District unveils an extraordinary slate of summer activities to keep people of all ages informed, engaged, and entertained. 
  • Our Photos of the Month capture beautiful images of our families, successes, and cherished moments in time. 

Throughout this May 2024 edition, you’ll find our contributors once again delivering excellence to our loyal readers. And a huge shout out to all our advertisers — we are forever grateful for your unwavering commitment to lifting the voices of our community.

Rise,
