Oral-History Projects Marks Book Release Tonight

The 2014 Crossing Fences Project holds a free event to mark the release of its multimedia booklets documenting a program that had 47 African-American boys and young men gathering the stories of 34 black men ages 21 to 78.

The program, which engaged participants from Wilkinsburg, East Liberty and Sto-Rox, was run by SLB Radio Productions, with backing from the Heinz Endowments African American Men and Boys Initiative and other supporters.

The open-house-style event tonight, at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, is a chance to meet with and hear the stories of the participants.

The event is free and so are the booklets.

The City-Wide Celebration of Crossing Fences runs from 6-8 p.m. at the Children’s Museum. The Museum is located at 10 Children’s Way, on the North Side.
