Homer S. Brown - The First African-American Judge of Pittsburgh, Pa
This February, we commemorate Black History Month and honor the accomplishments of African-Americans throughout history. One man who made a significant impact in the civil rights movement right here in our region is Homer S. Brown. Brown was the father of the Pennsylvania state Fair Employment Practices Act, a champion for racial equality, and Pittsburgh's first African-American judge. We salute Homer S. Brown during Black History Month as an example of strength and determination in fighting for civil rights.
