UNLV is addressing systemic racism and its impact on our community.

Last night, local leaders held the first of seven virtual town halls.

Brenda Williams was in that town hall. Brenda became the first African-American to work at a bank in Nevada back in the '60s.

Williams says her boss and her customers were blatantly racist toward her from day one.

The goal of the virtual town halls is to come up with steps the community can take to address racism and inequality.
