        Las Vegas Chocolate City Tour


 
 

America is billed as the melting pot of the world. We have many people from many different places. But as all things have their beginning, so does the city of Las Vegas, Incorporated in 1905.  Prior to this there were African Americans living in the Valley struggling through an unpaved and new developing area most people would find unfit for human habitation.

 
 

As the valley populated with people and businesses. Interesting industry ideas developed in the small oasis and gaming came along. With it, more people and businesses. The area grew and prospered but things were not always equal in Las Vegas in terms of access to entertainment venues, property ownership and business opportunities. 


While Las Vegas drew people to the lights and the action of the casinos,  African Americans were excluded from participating in the industry they worked in and helped build. While able to make a living in businesses and casinos. 


Africans Americans were excluded from entering into casino front doors as patrons or reserving hotel  rooms, eating in restaurants, or using the swimming pools. After working in the establishments, employees were escorted out of the back door and the returned across the rail road tracks home, whether they were head lining entertainers or not.

 
 

The West Side of Las Vegas was populated predominately by African Americans. They had Businesses; Restaurants, Hotels, Stores, and Casinos. Jackson Street was labeled "The Black Strip" for it's Casinos, Night Clubs, and Entertainment spots. After hours, when the Las Vegas Shows ended for the evening, many celebrates and entertainers would come over across the tracks to the West Side and hang out enjoying the night life there. White patrons were never excluded from Black establishments, and were able to co-mingle with the locals, all in the same place, where the agenda was to have a good time.
