Las Vegas, Nevada
Documenting Latinx History in Las Vegas

With funding from the NEH, the Oral History Research Center at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas embarked on an effort to document Latinx impact on Southern Nevada’s educational systems, business sectors, politics, and cultural life. The project supported student success and inspired investment from the local community, all while documenting and preserving 160 oral histories that ensure Latinx history will be represented in broader narratives of the region in years to come.

“The project documents the city’s Latinx people, where and how they lived, and what their jobs were like, and while doing so documents the evolution of Las Vegas itself.”

–Claytee White, director of the Oral History Research Center
