Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh. Oliver will talk about growing up in Pittsburgh and what motivated him to serve so selflessly throughout his career.

Yara Kaleemah was born in Newark, NJ in the early 90's. As a child she would spend hours writing stories. When her friends were outside, playing, she was in the house writing. Being that she was an only child she had a lot of time on her hands. Naturally, when people asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she would say "an author."
In 2013, Yara published her first novella, Too Much to Chew. It was the greatest accomplishment. Soon after came three more outstanding urban fiction novels. Then, she started S.W.A.G Productions. Wanting to establish something creative, the acronym stands for Strong Women Achieving Greatness. SWAG Productions is a platform for self-published authors. The company offers services such as editing, proofreading, and typing.
Now, Yara is working hard at school and becoming a bestselling author. She is excited to embark on this new journey with SWAG Productions and fE Mag. Even though sometimes it is difficult to juggle motherhood, being a wife, a student, an author, and a publisher, she manages. With hard work and dedication she will achieve all of her goals.
Karla and John continue with their interviews of the 2015 class of Urban Heroes with their interview of Pastors George and Sandra Russell. The Russells have been married for 54 years and pastors at Temple of God Church in Washington, PA for 27 years. Today the Russells join our co-hosts to talk about life, marriage, raising children and ministry. During the show, one of their children will call in to talk about her parents and their work. Once you listen, you will know why they were nominated and chosen for the latest class of Urban Heroes.
