NeighborHOOD Conversations

It’s difficult for a city to shake its own popular narrative, regardless of how widespread it is. Pittsburgh is still battling its reputation as a grimy steel town, despite the fact that manufacturing sizzled out decades ago. For the city’s historically black neighborhoods, it’s been difficult to shake the negative perceptions some have of them, despite their vibrant and thriving communities and art scene. NeighborHOOD Conversations, a new series at The Shop aims to bring positive discussions toward neighborhoods that are “often flooded with negative press.” The first event, hosted by Michelyn Hood and Brian Cook, features DJ Nate da Phat Barber, and focuses on Homewood and the Hill District.
