What can Pittsburgh, as a community, do to improve race relations in the city? According to Al Lingo, a white Protestant minister, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from Selma to Montgomery and was assigned by King to talk with other white people in the South about voting rights for black people, every journey starts with a first step.
On Thursday, February 8, PIIN will hear from Al Lingo, a white Protestant minister who worked with Dr. Martin Luther King in St. Augustine, Florida and Selma, Alabama in the 1960s. We hope you’ll join us to hear Al share his treasure trove of experiences fighting for justice alongside Dr. King.
“Every time I want to push Dr. King to the back of my mind as far as civil rights and equality are concerned, I just see how we’re still fighting the same battles,” Rev. Welch said.
