Join the University of Pittsburgh for a screening of filmmaker Ken Love's documentary featuring a compilation of interviews with George Barbour talking about his career leading up to and including the seminal Selma-to-Montgomery March. A discussion on the historical influence of Black journalists and matters around Black journalism, featuring contemporaries of Barbour and Pitt students, will follow the screening.

In 1965, as the first African-American KDKA Radio reporter, George Barbour marched 54-miles alongside civil rights activists including Martin Luther King Jr., interviewing participants, including John Lewis, along the way. A Pittsburgh native and University of Pittsburgh alum, Barbour stands as an important and resilient journalist from a revolutionary period of U.S. history.
