LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The City of North Las Vegas is celebrating Black History Month with a social media campaign.

Pieces of artwork are being displayed virtually from people in the valley and from students at the Southern Nevada Urban Micro Academy.

Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown helped put the campaign together.

She says one of their goals is to educate people about the contributions made by Black Americans who are normally ignored.

North Las Vegas Chief of Staff Rebecca Gipson also spearheaded the campaign.

She hopes the effort will recognize those who have paved the way for equality.
