Let’s end a great month with this dynamic duo…

Dwight and Chandra Law are owners of House of Law, Inc funeral home in Penn Hills which is a part of a long legacy of funeral homes dating back over 100 years!

PIMS is proud to call these two alumni and we thank them for celebrating Black History Month with us.


Why February was chosen as Black History Month

February was chosen primarily because the second week of the month coincides with the birthdays of both Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Lincoln was influential in the emancipation of slaves, and Douglass, a former slave, was a prominent leader in the abolitionist movement, which fought to end slavery.

Black History Month shouldn't be treated as though it is somehow separate from our collective American history or somehow just boiled down to a compilation of greatest hits from the March on Washington or from some of our sports heroes," Obama said.
It's about the lived, shared experience of all African Americans, high and low, famous and obscure, and how those experiences have shaped and challenged and ultimately strengthened America.

We’ve enjoyed sharing a few of the many African Americans who’ve made great contributions, both locally and globally and we hope you have to.


During the 1960s, Jake Milliones was a soldier in the local civil rights movement before he became the city’s most respected black leader. He believed in helping those who were willing to help themselves.

Between 1966 and 1973, he earned  bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. He was a clinical psychologist at Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic.

In an editorial, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette praised him as “a public servant who promoted the city’s general well being. If anyone, in the short history of City Council’s by-district system, had mastered how to balance representation for his constituents with leadership for the entire city, it was Jake Milliones.”

Milliones, became president of the school board in the 1980s before he became Pittsburgh’s first African American elected from the Hill District to city council in 1988. A school in the neighborhood still bears the Milliones name.



Edward C. Gainey (born 1970) is an American politician who is the 61st and current mayor of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Previously, he served as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from the 24th district.[1] In November 2021, Gainey became the first African-American to be elected mayor of Pittsburgh. In 2010, he became the first African-American to serve as chairman of the Pittsburgh City Democratic Committee. He currently serves as Allegheny County Democratic Committeeman in the 12th Ward 10th District.

State Representative Ed Gainey brings new leadership and a new vision to the neighborhoods that make up the 24th Legislative District. His legislative priorities are labor issues, working-class families, transportation, education, community development and enhancement.


Dr. Morris Edward Turner (1948 - 2014) who practiced in Obstetrics & Gynecology for more than 37 years. He was 65 years old. Even though his main office was in East Liberty he had 25 other office locations.
In 1969 he was recruited to earn his graduate certificate from the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. After graduating from the school in 1973, Turner completed a residency program in obstetrics and gynecology at Magee Women’s Hospital, where he met Dr. Robert Kisner and formed a plan to start a program focused on the city’s Black community.

Over the course of his career Turner served as president of Magee Women’s Hospital’s medical staff, was a member of the Allegheny County Medical Society’s board of directors, was medical director of Adagio Health, chief of gynecological services at McKeesport Hospital and medical director of Allegheny Reproductive Health Center.
He was named a New Pittsburgh Courier Man of Excellence in 2012.


August Wilson, original name Frederick August Kittel (1945-2005) was an American playwright who chronicled Black American life. He won Pulitzer Prizes for two of his plays: Fences and The Piano Lesson.

Wilson grew up in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, a lively poor neighbourhood that became the setting for most of his plays. Wilson and his family were the target of racial threats in Hazelwood, and he quit school at age 15 after being accused of having plagiarized a paper. He turned to self-education, reading intensively in a public library and returning to the Hill District to learn from residents there. He changed his last name from Kittel to Wilson.

He received numerous honours during his career, including seven New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards for best play. He also held Guggenheim and Rockefeller fellowships. Shortly after his death, the Virginia Theater on Broadway was renamed in his honour. The August Wilson Center for African American Culture opened in Pittsburgh in 2009.

Billy Porter, age 52 is an American actor, singer, and author. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama, and achieved fame performing on Broadway before starting a solo career as a singer and actor. Porter won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his role as Lola in Kinky Boots.
Porter appeared on American Talent Show Star Search in 1992 and won $100,000. He appeared on the same show as other future stars, such as a young Britney Spears.


Ronald McNair, Astronaut


Thelma Williams Lovette

Thelma Willimas Lovette was born and raised in the Hill District of Pittsburgh.

Mrs Lovette graduated from Schenley High School in 1934 and worked various jobs as a dishwasher, an elevator operator, legal secretary and was hired as the first black social worker at Mercy Hospital. She earned a Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Pgh. She was a force in the establishment of primary care centers, outreach centers for senior citizens and the Freedom House Ambulance, the forerunner of today's EMS. She was a member of Grace Memorial Presbytarian Church.
Thelma Lovette was selected to carry the torch in the 1996 Olympic Torch Relay. To honor her lifelong dedication to the community, the YMCA on Center Ave was named Thelma Lovette YMCA in April 2012.

Her credo was, "I am my brother's keeper."


Lonnie G Johnson, Aerospace Engineer

Johnson wasn’t a toy developer, he was an Aerospace Engineer for NASA when he invented the Super Soaker water gun in 1989, which has been among the world's bestselling toys ever since. He also invented the Nerf Gun when he patented "a pneumatic launcher for a toy projectile" which revolutionised toy blasters.

First all-Black team of climbers heading to Everest

Nearly 70 years ago, New Zealand explorer Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first confirmed climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, the world’s tallest peak. Since then, just over 10,000 others have completed the feat. Of those, only a handful have been Black and only one a Black American. In May, under the name of Full Circle Everest Expedition, a team of nine, highly qualified Black climbers intend to change that.


African Americans In The NFL


Yesterdays performance marked the first time that hip-hop artists have headlined the showcase. As a generation, for the last two years, we have had to bury our parents, our friends we grew up with, and we have lost careers.

We have had to start all over while being faced with new responsibilities associated with a "new normal" during these "unprecedented times."

We needed this 13-minutes.

For 13-minutes, on a Sunday in the middle of probably the most mentally and emotionally taxing time of our lives, we Gen. X/Millennials were comforted, recharged, and didn't have a care in the world.

We were taken back to a simpler time in our lives.

We were encouraged knowing that the one and only D-O-Double-G is still riding with the D-R-E.

We partied like it was our "birfday" with 50.

We got it crunk with Mary and reminded that we don't need no hateration.

We were reminded by Eminem that when you have one shot, one opportunity to seize everything you've ever wanted - take it. Lose yourself in the moment, own it, and never let it go.

These are the reminders we needed.

We are the strongest, most influential generation to date.

And we've still got it.

We needed this halftime show to remind us. 💜


Happy Valentines Day!


Fitting for a Sunday. Wrapping up the week we have Richard Allen. Allen founded the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
