LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Black Image Magazine celebrates Black life and entertainment within the Las Vegas community.

Poet Amanda Gorman, who captured hearts and inspired hope at President Joe Biden's inauguration this past January, was featured on the cover of the latest edition of the magazine's issue.

So, this month's theme is celebrating generations of family and what they've handed down.

Magazine owner Kimberly Bailey-Tureaud comes by that rightfully. Her father, the late Bob Bailey, was a well-known Civil Rights leader, TV broadcaster and a presidential appointee. He instilled in her the value of hard work, which it takes to put such a publication together with a talented staff of contributors.

"It's really just a positive representation of African Americans doing progressive things," Bailey-Tureaud said.

The magazine is a free monthly publication that is delivered with the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

It has been covering the valley for the past 13 years, with its first issue featuring Barack Obama's historic presidential win.

And with a lot of hard work, the magazine continues to go strong, covering those in the Las Vegas African American community who help pave the way.
