2015 SOUL CAFÉ 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015
Roland’s Seafood Grill, 1904 Penn Ave., Strip District
Like a cool breeze on a hot summer night, the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation’s Soul Café just makes you feel good. For more than a decade, PBMF has brought that good feeling to Pittsburgh audiences across the city.
The Soul Café’s lineup of some of the region’s most talented singers, musicians and spoken-word artists makes everyone feel good. More important, the fact that the proceeds from the Soul Café benefit the PBMF Scholarship Fund makes everyone feel really good! This year’s co-hosts will be Harold Hayes, a veteran KDKA-TV reporter, and Sheila Beasley, an actress, singer and University of Pittsburgh outreach and communications director in the Office of Child Development.
PBMF presents scholarships annually to college students who’ve participated in the organization’s Frank Bolden Urban Journalism Workshop for teens. Successful alumni from the workshop include Keith Alexander, business reporter and columnist at The Washington Post; Sharon Epperson, personal finance correspondent for CNBC; Deborah Todd, business reporter at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette; and Sonya Toler, public information officer for Pittsburgh’s Department of Public Safety.
