This exhibit respectfully salutes the beautiful and talented people who graced the stage of the Black Extravaganza Productions Inc. We regret that we were unable to acknowledge or display all of the performers who participated (lost photos and names) but our efforts did find refreshing memories from the material we were able to research, secure and restore. We hope that in viewing this pictorial presentation, you will grasp vividly the pride, honor and determination that embodied the spirit of this Las Vegas Community, historically referred to as, “The Westside”.
