A Community Forum

As Pittsburghers, we take pride in the many ways our city has progressed over the past decades. Our city continues to succeed in the fields of education, medicine, technology, the arts and more. But are all Pittsburghers reaping the benefits? How will Black Pittsburghers share in the success of our livable city?

This special aired in conjunction with the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh's annual report "The State of Black Pittsburgh." This important panel discussion focuses on three areas: Creating A Truly Livable City, Creating Sustainable STEAM and STEM careers, particularly in the STEAM related fields and Leadership: Working Together to Make Change.
