On Monday, Feb. 20, the UNLV University Libraries’ multi-year project “Documenting the African American Experience in Las Vegas” will culminate with the premiere of the Vegas PBS documentary African Americans: The Las Vegas Experience.

“The history of the Las Vegas African American community is the history of Las Vegas,” says Patricia Iannuzzi, dean of the UNLV University Libraries. “This documentary ​honors the African American community of Las Vegas and we are grateful to have the opportunity to share this story in the words of the people who lived it.”
