On March 26, 1960, civil rights leaders, hotel owners and members of the public met at the Moulin Rouge to work on an agreement which led to the desegregation of Las Vegas casinos. Assemblyman Harvey Munford, D-Las Vegas, accepted “Ambassador for Peace” awards on behalf of Bob Baileyand Rev. Donald Clark, the last two surviving people who were at the historic meeting.
