Two years ago, in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, March 26th was proclaimed, "Moulin Rouge Agreement Day," by Mayor Carolyn Goodman of Las Vegas. The original agreement, signed on March 26, 1960, was the first agreement to allow African American entertainers or guests to stay in or be served in the casinos.

Today, with the pressing issues of division and ill-feeling between races becoming of greater national concern, Ms. Katherine Duncan, on behalf of the Ward 5 Chamber of Commerce and Harrison House, wanted to see a program to once again affirm this agreement, putting it in the context of reconciliation and healing. To commemorate that event, she requested the participation of…
