Audio Resources

This guide was created to focus a lens on Las Vegas's African-American community but understanding that Las Vegas is full of diverse heritages and backgrounds, here are some additional resources that acknowledge some of those other heritages as well.  Audio resources can offer some meaningful takeaways that are perfect for those trying to learn more on the go. Those who have different learning styles may also find these audio resources digestible in a different way than reading may be. If you have any suggestions for additional ways of learning or resources you might like to be added, please contact the guide creator at
