We haven’t done any Las Vegas History lately. If you’re new to VeryVintageVegas, it’s one of the things we try to cover. I’m NOT the historian, just one of the students. Lynn Zook of the Classic Las Vegas, among others are historians. She presents a monthly panel discussion called “Untold Stories”.
This month the topic is African American Entertainers in Las Vegas. We invite you
We kick off a the new year with our first “Untold Stories” on Thursday, February 4th with a look at African-American Entertainers in Las Vegas. We will discuss the early days of segregation up through what it is like to perform in Las Vegas today.
