Great discussion with my friend from stand-up, Dave Porter, and his grandfather Dr. Curtiss Porter. The two have worked together for the last few years to build The African Library Unburnt - TALUB. Their lecture series on the history and psychology of being positively black has helped them land a TedxPittsburgh appearance. The event is this Saturday, June 18th, 11:30AM, at the Byham Theater.

Our discussion covers the changes in Pittsburgh neighborhoods, academia, activism and the cinematic growth of black stories in just the past few years.
