Springs Preserve Black History Month Festival

The Springs Preserve will celebrate the contributions of African-Americans to the Las Vegas community as it hosts its 4th annual Black History Month Festival.

The festival will feature performances by youth step groups and local jazz, gospel and hip-hop entertainers, and an art competition showcasing students from Andre Agassi Prep. In addition, Henderson resident Dr. My Haley, widow and writing collaborator of Alex Haley, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “Roots,” will autograph copies of her novel, “The Treason of Mary Louvestre.” The novel tells the story of an enslaved seamstress who risks her life while spying on the Confederate navy during the Civil War.

The event also will feature activities for the kids, including arts and crafts, carnival games and face-painting. Admission is $5 for adults aged 13 and older and free for children 12 and under. Visit www.springspreserve.org for more information.

The Springs Preserve Black History Month Festival is made possible through the generous support of Caesars Entertainment and NV Energy.
