Baltimore | March 29, 2017 – April 9, 2017 @ Henry Heymann Theatre


Shelby Wilson becomes a Resident Advisor because it will look good on her resume, but a racially charged incident on campus has set student against student, and it’s up to Shelby to mediate. With compassion and a deep understanding of the issues at play, Baltimore tackles the complexities of racism in America from the perspective of eight different college students.

Funding for Baltimore was made possible in part by the  A. W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust Fund at The Pittsburgh Foundation.

I Am Not Your Negro @ Harris Theater | Fri, Feb 17 to Thu, Mar 2, Various Times

iamnotOscar Nominee for Best Documentary Feature

“Thrilling,” “remarkable,” “exceptional,” “brilliant” – these are just some of the adjectives critics have used to describe this stirring documentary based on James Baldwin’s unfinished book. Featuring the voice of Samuel L. Jackson, it’s a journey through black history that connects the Civil Rights movement to the current #BlackLivesMatter movement. Using Baldwin’s elegant words with rich archival material, it questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond, and challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

NEED 54th Annual Scholarship Benefit Dinner | To Honor The Best & Brightest Students In Pittsburgh on March 2 at the Wyndham

NEED54DinnerMarch2On March 2, 2017, NEED will host their 54th Annual Scholarship Benefit Dinner. The annual benefit dinner honors that year’s scholarship recipients and celebrates the corporate, academic and community partnerships that make it possible to further their mission: to provide access to education and career development services that empower youth from the Pittsburgh region to aspire to, learn about, prepare for and complete higher education.

This year’s theme, “Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Genius” speaks to NEED’s 54 -year history of supporting the educational endeavors of youth from the Pittsburgh region. In 1963, NEED founders, Florence Reizenstein and Marion Jordon, began a temporary program to garner funds for 76 black high school students who were accepted to a college or university, but were not financially able to attend. That number has grown to over 30,000.  NEED’s vision is to unlock the power of education by helping underserved youth meet their highest potential and enhance their quality of life through education, thereby strengthening the regional economy.

This year’s NEED Benefit takes place on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown. Over 600 individuals from corporations, universities, churches and foundations, as well as friends and family of the honored students are expected to attend this wonderful event.  Mr. Marc Nyarko and Mrs. Berniece Nyarko are the Dinner Chairs.

Tickets are available through March 2, 2017. To schedule interviews or photos, please contact Andrea Murphy at amurphy@needld.org. Press materials will be available on-site for all attending media. Please RSVP to Andrea Murphy at 412-566- 2760 or email at amurphy@needld.org.  Visit www.needld.org

FUNDRAISER: Black Youth Summit Pittsburgh

blackyouthsummitHi, I’m Angel from Pittsburgh, PA. When I was a freshman, a beautiful and confident black woman who was a senior at my school threw a black youth summit. At the time, I had no idea what was in store. But it changed my life for sure. I learned about colorism, the history of the N word and many other topics that relate to the black community. I left that day feeling enlightened, knowledgeable and most importantly empowered.

Through the years I have been waiting for another one to happen. Sadly, it never did. However, there were very small events amongst the black students that attend independent schools in the Pittsburgh area. These were great but I felt that the black students in Pittsburgh were not together. The public school students stayed with their people and the independent school students stayed with theirs. This saddened me because I know the potential we all have together and the strength we would possess if we could all just come together.

Therefore, for my senior year, I decided to host my own black youth summit. The point of this summit is to bridge the gap between the black public school students and the black independent school students. Under one roof everyone can come together and build a huge network of support and empowerment. This can only happen with your help! The money will be going towards the food and supplies for the event. Please feel free to donate any amount, anything helps. Thank you.

Darrell Warden: A Pittsburgh Success Story

By Christiana Dillard

“It’s always about being better.”  Darrell Warden, hiring manager for Team Warden & Team Tri-state Group (a part of The Miles Group Insurance Agency) is the embodiment of his own statement. The agency has personnel in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and even Delaware; and their motto, “One Vision,” exemplifies their commitment to “being better.”  And each day Warden personally strives to be the best.

Warden had his beginnings in Rankin, a low-income borough in the Greater Pittsburgh area. However, he refused to allow the town’s bleak environment to bring him down. He attended Full Sail University in Florida and went on to become a music executive at Bad Boy Records with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. Warden was at Bad Boy for ten years before moving back to Pittsburgh to work in the mortgage loan department at PNC Bank. When he was laid off from PNC, he found out that some of his old acquaintances were forming their own insurance group, headed by Troy Miles and hopped on board. For his role as a founding member of The Miles Group, Warden became a hiring manager for his own team within the agency and hasn’t looked back since. Continue reading

Borough Statement on Demolitions and Blight 1/3/17

Last week, multiple news channels have chosen to focus on recent emergency demolition projects in Wilkinsburg.  While dealing with blight in the Borough can seem overwhelming at times, we would like to update taxpayers on the ongoing and pro-active efforts being undertaken by Council to deal with this daunting task.

In 2016, the Borough completed 20 demolitions and have awarded contracts for another 29 demolitions which will begin shortly. Council’s goal has been to address demolition needs proactively, receiving grant sources for demolition even with continued reductions in funding available for this purpose from traditional sources such as HUD and their Community Block Grant Program.  Continue reading

Who has helped you achieve where you are today?

Eight new graduates across Point Park University’s four schools shared their thoughts about who has helped them along their journey to earning a master’s degree from Point Park. Below is the response from a friend of Soul Pitt, Mr. Lorenzo Boone:


Photo from http://www.pointpark.edu

Lorenzo Boone, M.F.A. in Writing for the Screen and Stage

“To begin, I have to acknowledge my 85-year-old mother, who I am fortunate to still have with me. It is her lost opportunities and dreams that I carry on my shoulders daily. Through her life, I recognize that we stand on the shoulders of giants. Professors Nelson Chipman and Elise D’Haene also played a significant role in my development, and gave me incentive to keep driving towards my goals. They helped me believe that my style of storytelling and the voice that accompanies it needs to be told. They convinced me that even though it may not be traditional or mainstream, it has a place and it has merit.”
