Racism, police brutality, disparities in education, careers, health care, economic opportunity, business and housing - are just some of the issues that have long plagued Pittsburgh's African American and other marginalized communities. It's important to know who's already working for change. But how can others get involved? Whose positive efforts are going unnoticed? WQED's video documentary series hopes to create dialogue by sharing the thoughtful voices of a diverse group – different backgrounds, different ideas, different goals - all working towards equity.
