John L. Smith is an award-winning journalist and is the author of more than a dozen books on some of the most significant characters in Nevada history. For this event he will discuss his book "The Westside Slugger: Joe Neal's Lifelong Fight for Social Justice," the story of the history-making state lawmaker who rose from his humble beginnings to become the first African American to serve in the Nevada State Senate.
This program will be held via Zoom. Please register and receive the meeting link prior to the program.
