From the University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries comes Documenting the African American Experience in Las Vegas. This extensive web project was created "to fully preserve the heritage of the Las Vegas black community [...] and make it easily accessible to everyone." Here, readers will find a searchable database of over 4,000 digital items, including images, oral history transcripts, and audio clips of the interviews. The homepage includes an embedded YouTube video of the PBS documentary African Americans: The Las Vegas Experience, which was made in 2016 as part of this project. Educators will also find an extensive 90-page curriculum guide with 21 lessons based on the PBS documentary and on content from the African American Experience in Las Vegas collection. Each lesson specifies its intended grade level, the academic content standards it corresponds to, and the amount of time needed for the lesson's different components. The African American Experience in Las Vegas project is directed by Claytee White, Director of the Oral History Research Center at UNLV Libraries.
