Vegas PBS Panel Discussions

By Tom Sommer on November 22, 2013 7:23 PM | Permalink

The collaborative to Document the African American Experience in Las Vegas is in the process of conducting the second series of roundtable discussions.  The first panel filmed in this sequence recalled fact and memories about Berkley Square.  On November 6, 2013 the conversation was by Brenda William with panelists that included Esther Langston, Agnes Marshall, Jarmilla McMillan-Arnold, and Courtney Mooney.  They examined various aspects of this first subdivision in Nevada built by and for African Americans.  Architect Paul Williams designed the homes and the Thomas Berkley acted as financier for Berkley Square which is located approximately 1/2 mile from the center downtown.

One week later, Patricia Cunningham, master talk show host, moderated a panel that discussed Las Vegas black media.  Craig Knight (GM KCEP), Ramon Savoy (Editor, Sentinel Voice Newspaper), Roosevelt Toston (first news anchorman of color), and Kim Bailey Tureaud (Founder and Editor of Black Image Magazine) provided insights on the history and future of black media in the Westside community and beyond.
