The City of North Las Vegas is celebrating Black History Month all through February with a social media campaign filled with daily trivia, artwork and facts to honor African American leaders and every day citizens who have made a difference in our community and nation’s history, along with enriched lessons for students at the Southern Nevada Urban Micro Academy (SNUMA).

Local community artists will also have their artwork on what Black History means to them highlighted throughout the month and SNUMA students will participate in a number of activities highlighting historical Black leaders, including an essay contest on historic figures and their contributions to America and guest speakers visiting the classrooms.

North Las Vegas Chief of Staff Rebecca Gipson, who helped organize the campaign with Councilwoman Goynes-Brown, also hopes the effort will recognize those who have paved the way for equality.
