Ensuring Pittsburgh's African Americans enjoy economic self-reliance, parity, power and civil rights has been at the forefront of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh for 100 years.

The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh

The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh is celebrating its centennial. Founded in 1918, part of its mission has been to enable African Americans to secure economic self-reliance. 

The Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh will hold a community-wide celebration on Sunday at the August Wilson Center. It will be the first time the center opens its doors since shuttering last fall. The center is not actually re-opened to the public yet.

“What better than the August Wilson Center,” asked Bush in terms of the decision to hold the event there, “I was extremely pleased that we were able to be accommodated.”

The celebration will be from 4-6 p.m. Sunday. There will be speeches by clergy, singing from a choir and snacks.
