In 1918, the Engineers' Society of Western Pennsylvania gifted the city of Pittsburgh a 10-acre stretch of green space that sits right on the dividing line between Homewood and Point Breeze North. The land had once belonged to American inventor George Westinghouse, and the new city park was named after him.

About 300 people marched from Homewood to North Point Breeze Saturday afternoon led by black activists and followed by white allies. 

The peaceful march organized by a group of black women and femmes intentionally prioritized the needs and voices of black attendees. All intersections of the black community including physical ability and sexual orientation and identity were welcomed as well as white allies. Organizer Deaja Baker said it was a chance to uplift the black communities.
