Black Journalists Honor Homewood Men

Posted by Elwin Green on November 17, 2017 at 5:20 PM

A photo exhibit being unveiled next month will honor men in Homewood for their service and leadership.


“American Heroes: The Homewood Project” is a photo series offering portraits and bios of 20 men, ranging from their 20s to their 70s, who live and/or work in Homewood.


The project was produced by members of the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation, the local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.


The men being honored were selected through a nomination process in which PBMF reached out to the community to ask whom they considered to be heroes.


I am one of them. The other 19 include Rashad Byrdsong, founder and CEO of Community Empowerment Association, Neil Dorsey, owner of Dorsey's Records, and James A. Brown, the director of the Homewood-Brushton YMCA's Lighthouse program.


The resulting exhibit will be unveiled in a reception at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA on December 3, from 3:30 - 6 pm. The event is free and the public is invited - to get tickets, visit the project's Eventbrite page.


"American Heroes" is part of NABJ's Black Male Media Project, #InspireBlackMen, a nationwide effort to inspire, support and develop training and mentorship opportunities for black men working in journalism and media and those who aspire to do so.
