Black History Month: The Entertainers

For over seventy years Las Vegas News Bureau photographers have been recording and preserving the the entertainment history of Las Vegas in the News Bureau archive. There are hundreds of thousands of film negatives and images, many of which haven’t been seen in years, and some which may never have been published. Here, in a special edition for Black History Month, is a selection of some of our favorite images of the performers who helped establish Las Vegas as the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”
