During this past year of organizing the African American Collaborative, a series of three Town Hall Meetings were hosted at the West Las Vegas Public Library. The meetings introduced community members to the project, encouraging participation as narrators and sharing of personal photos and other memorabilia. The success of this project will be increased by the contributions materials and memories such as these.
