Turn The Tables: History of Race & Education in Pittsburgh

January 18 , 6:30 pm

Turn The Tables: History of Race & Education in Pittsburgh
description: Half a century after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his dream has yet to be fully realized. Here in Pittsburgh, black students are less than half as likely to meet the SAT’s College and Career Readiness Benchmarks in 11th grade than their white counterparts.

In honor of MLK weekend, join us for a free dinner to learn about the historical context for this disparity, read about the reasons for it, and discuss how we can work toward a more equitable education system in Pittsburgh!

The dinner will be on Friday, January 18 at 6:30pm. It will be held at The Shop in Homewood (621 N Dallas Ave).
