Pittsburgh’s Deplorable Black Living Conditions

This session will provide the latest data on the living conditions of the Black community in the Pittsburgh area. The information presented comes from economic, education, housing, health, and criminal justice public sources, and lays bare the deplorable circumstances faced by a vital segment of our city’s and region’s population. The data, as well as the small group discussions, should guide our efforts to more fully relate to the community in which Pitt is located and to strengthen our teaching and research.


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe current living conditions of the Pittsburgh region’s Black population
  • Identify how economic, housing, health, and criminal justice disparities are reflected in (or absent from) our classrooms and research agendas
  • Self-assess the need to adjust attitudes, teaching strategies, or scholarly work to acknowledge the state of the Black community that surrounds and supports our university

Speaker:

Ralph Bangs taught race for many years at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and in study abroad programs. He was associate director of the Center on Race and Social Problems at Pitt. His most recent book is “Race and Social Problems: Restructuring Inequality”. He received Racial Justice and Race Leadership Awards.
