Thank you for your tremendous support at the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation’s Soul Café. You showed up and showed out! The Soul Café was amazing and we enjoyed celebrating with you.
This year’s Soul Café was a huge success. I am happy to announce we raised a record amount for our Frank Bolden Urban Journalism Workshop scholarship fund. We could not have done that without you.
As we celebrate 30 years of the workshop, we also celebrate the 40th anniversary of PBMF. You reminded us of the important role that our organization has played in Pittsburgh.
To our Soul Café emcee, Brother Marlon, featured speaker, Robert Hill, and venue, Roland’s Seafood Grill, thank you.
To our artists, you are so gifted and unique. We appreciate you donating your time and blessing our program with your gifts. Kudos!
To our guests and sponsors, your support was integral to the success of the Soul Café. Thank you.
Please keep in touch with us. Visit us at www.pbmf.org, “like” us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter @pghblackmedia. We look forward to celebrating African-American sights, songs and stories with you at next year’s Soul Café.
Thank you again!
Tonita L. Davidson, president of PBMF
