United Pittsburgh Public Speaker Series Schedule and Topics

We have invited local leaders to discuss Pittsburgh's most pressing challenges--and meaningful solutions--in a series of public presentations to students and community residents alike. Speakers include Samuel Black, director of African American Programs at the Heinz History Center; Temple Sinai Rabbi James Gibson; Majestic Lane, Pittsburgh's deputy chief of Neighborhood Empowerment; Carlow University President Suzanne Mellon, Ph.D.; Grant Oliphant, president of The Heinz Endowments; LaKeisha Wolf, executive director of Ujamma Collective.

These community forums are open to the public and are free of charge. The presentations will be held on the Duquesne University campus in College Hall, Room 447, unless otherwise noted.
