LVNBA Members (l-r) Judge Timothy C. Williams, Booker T. Evans, Chief Judge Karen Bennett-Haron, John R. Bailey, Professor Rachel J. Anderson (moderator), and Justice Michael L. Douglas participated in a roundtable filmed by Vegas PBS in March 2012. The participants discussed the development of the early African-American legal community in Las Vegas.
The “Early African-American Legal Community” roundtable was one of four, one-hour conversations that, together, comprise the Las Vegas African American Community Conversations organized by Claytee White and filmed by Vegas PBS. The Community Conversations are a precursor to a project documenting the African-American experience in Las Vegas that is being spearheaded by UNLV Libraries. This collaborative project involves the Las Vegas community, UNLV Libraries, the Las Vegas Chapter of the National Bar Association, the Wiener-Rogers Law Library, the public libraries, the University of Nevada, the State Museum, Vegas PBS, and city and county governments. It is funded by the Nevada State Library and Archives under the Library Services and Technology Act and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
