The Senator John Heinz History Center will host the world premiere of a new documentary film, “Wendell G. Freeland: A Silent Soldier,” on Thursday, Nov. 2, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
A Tuskegee Airman, Civil Rights attorney, and powerful advocate for the poor and disenfranchised, Wendell G. Freeland devoted 70 years to fighting injustice wherever he found it – from the age of Jim Crow to the presidency of Barack Obama. He served as Chairman of the Urban League of Pittsburgh’s Board of Directors and as a Senior Vice President of the National Urban League Board of Trustees.
He blazed a trail for racial equality by working largely behind the scenes in America’s courtrooms, boardrooms, and political backrooms.
