An exhibit celebrating Black History Month is on display in the lobby of the City-County Building in downtown Pittsburgh weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Thursday, February 28.
"A Call to Freedom” honors the role of African Americans in the Armed Forces during the Civil War period, including their roles as soldiers, nurses and field doctors. The display includes a look at the U.S. Colored Troops, one of the first predominantly African American regiments in the U.S. Armed Forces.
“The City’s 2013 Black History Month exhibit showcases an inspiring collection of photographs and memorabilia honoring individuals who have left a lasting legacy here in Pennsylvania as well as throughout the world,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said.
