Black History Month at the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District

Black History Month celebrates the diverse voices, histories, perspectives and experiences of the Black community and this month we honor its rich culture and significant contributions to every aspect of American life with a variety of free events for all ages across 25 branches valley wide.


Exhibit: black life ordinary
Rotunda Gallery at the Government Center
500 S. Grand Central Pkwy
January 15 – February 29, 2024
Reception: Friday, February 23, 2024 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm.
Ordinariness can be such a freeing and beautiful thing. Existing and being able to express yourself without any pressures happens so rarely and this exhibition seeks to celebrate that freedom. Black Life Ordinary is the theme for the annual Black History Month juried exhibition for 2024 and is informed by the work of Black scholars behind these ideas of the mundane. The artists in this show are showing Blackness without any conditions or stipulations. We will also be featuring poetry, live music, food, refreshments, and a photobooth! This is one event you don’t want to miss!

An exclusive red-carpet event for the premiere of the documentary "Across the Tracks: A Las Vegas Westside Story” First debuting during the Sundance Film Festival, the documentary produced and directed by Emmett Gates of Slicktion Culture explores black history in America and Las Vegas’ unique role within it. From the Jim Crow laws that denied Vegas performers like Nat King Cole, Lena Horne, Harry Belafonte, Sammy Davis Jr., and others from staying in Las Vegas hotels to the development of the city’s segregated historic Westside neighborhood, the film delves into the rich and untold stories of the historic Westside, offering an in-depth look at a history that often gets overlooked.
