African American http://wesa.fm en Black Pittsburghers Challenge Mayoral Candidates on a 'Black Agenda' http://wesa.fm/post/black-pittsburghers-challenge-mayoral-candidates-black-agenda <p>A newly formed group hoping to improve the political clout of Pittsburgh’s black community is calling out the four remaining Democratic mayoral candidates to respond to what it is calling a “Black Agenda.”</p><p>The Pittsburgh Black Political Convention was formed this year and will send to each candidate its “Black Agenda” later this week. The candidates will then be asked not only for a written response, but also to appear for what will amount to an oral test before a community gathering in the Hill District on April 19.</p> Thu, 04 Apr 2013 20:59:14 +0000 Mark Nootbaar 7316 at http://wesa.fm Black Pittsburghers Challenge Mayoral Candidates on a 'Black Agenda'
