Sept 23: YNGBLKPGH and PublicSource mentorship event
#YNGBLKPGH’s ambassadors wrote letters directly to the young ladies who participated in the PublicSource “I am a black girl and…” project. These messages planted seeds of encouragement, empowerment and hope in youth who have openly spoken about the many challenges of being black girls in a region that struggles with diversity and readily visible examples of African-American excellence.
The girls will have the opportunity to meet their mentors during this special event, which is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
“The visibility of role models for our young people is essential, especially in a city like Pittsburgh in which African Americans face many disparities including economic, health and overall quality-of-life inequities,” said Brian Burley, the book’s author and community activist.
