History of African-Americans in Las Vegas

Trace the history of blacks in Las Vegas from 1904 to the 1990s. Topics will include the formation of the original black community, moving that community to the west side of the tracks, the 1920s KKK, the Westside School, Jackson Street, organizations formed to build community including churches, the Moulin Rouge, segregation, integration on March 26, 1960, the consent decree, Welfare Rights Movement, riots, and Black Lives Matter. As these events are discussed, the class will frame this history within the constructs of place, gender, race, class, and generational norms. This look at Las Vegas history will be grounded in the history of the city and within black history nationally.
