Today, black Pittsburgh is known as the setting for August Wilson’s famed plays about noble but doomed working-class strivers. But from the 1920s to the 1950s, this community had an impact on American history that rivaled Harlem and Chicago. Whitaker, a journalist and former media executive at outlets including NBC and CNN, presents a captivating historic portrait of this unsung community.
