Morial: Make strides in education, employment and empowerment

MARC MORIAL Ten years after his first visit as president of the National Urban League, Marc Morial returned to Pittsburgh as the keynote luncheon speaker for the 95th Anniversary celebration of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh. In his remarks on the State of Black America, Morial called Pittsburgh the “back bone” of industrialization and a city that continues to transform itself, adding that the State of Black Pittsburgh is not unlike the state of America, intrinsically intertwined and linked one to the other.
