MLK Day 2022

It’s a snowbound Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Pittsburgh (as it is in many places impacted by Winter Storm Izzy). In recognition of the holiday I wanted to share a community callout recently posted by Public Source. The authors pivot from Ed Gainey’s recent inauguration as mayor to reflect on some lesser known Black leaders in Pittsburgh’s history, and ask readers to submit suggestions for other forgotten stories of Black Pittsburgh that deserve a spotlight. I learned a lot from the article and look forward to seeing what other stories come out of this community callout.
