The Recession's Effect on the African American Community
The Recession's Effect on the African American Community

AIR DATE: February 13, 2012

February is Black History Month, and UNLV is holding a forum looking at how the recession has impacted the African-American community.  So how hard was the Vegas community hit?  Were ethnic minorities more or less affected when it came to business, education, jobs, and healthcare?  Local leaders weigh in.  Leave your comments below or call in.
The UNLV forum runs Feb. 9 from 6-9 p.m. at UNLV's Greenspun Hall.  It is sponsored by the UNLV Office of Diversity Initiatives, the UNLV College of Urban Affairs, and the UNLV Black Professional Alliance.
