“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.”

When the average person talks about Las Vegas as decadent, sinful, dangerous and seedy, I am always the person in the room who argues the opposites.  From my vantage point I see a city that is vibrant, exciting and alive with possibilities.  Why the difference in perspective?  I see Las Vegas from inside average homes where I go to document the city's history.  I see Las Vegas as I record stories sitting at a kitchen table sharing a cup of coffee, or in the den with the family dog jumping on my lap, or on a patio listening to memories while watching a sunset.  This is my Las Vegas.  My Las Vegas extends from Sun Rise Mountain to Mt. Charleston, from Aliante to Boulder City, and from Blue Diamond to Lake Las Vegas.
