The hottest topic of discussion was our upcoming exhibition which will be held November 21, 2014 through February 1, 2015 at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. The show is entitled: Storytellers: Truth Be Told! The exhibition is open to women of the African Diaspora residing in NY, VA. WV, OH, DC and PA. The exhibit will showcase the many stories both tragic and uplifting that woman of color live daily.
