The city of Las Vegas invites the community to celebrate Black History Month with a variety of events in February.
Guests can check out The Neon Museum to learn about the important contributions of local Black leaders to Las Vegas history throughout the month of February.
The museum's newest addition, the Las Vegas Luminaries mural on the south wall of its North Gallery, pays tribute to a diverse, dedicated and sometimes overlooked cast of icons, including those who helped shape Las Vegas’ cultural history, including Theodora Boyd, Sammy Davis Jr, and Paul Revere Williams.
Various signs in the museum’s Neon Boneyard also offer interesting stories of notable Black Americans associated with businesses or sites that have deep roots in Las Vegas history, including the Moulin Rouge, Silver Slipper, and the Fitzgerald’s.Learn More
