Yes, today's guest has the same last name as Karla Byrd, John's cohost, and that is because Oliver Byrd is Karla's husband. On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. 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.
John and Karla met Deloris in 2014 while they were conducting a workshop for the residents of Hazelwood, a community in renewal in the City of Pittsburgh. They were so impressed with her story, which included surviving a bout with cancer, and leadership that they both nominated her to be part of the 2015 Urban Heroes class. Today Deloris joins Karla and John to tell listeners her story.
The Center for Urban Biblical Ministry has been educating adults in the Pittsburgh area in partnership with Geneva College since 1988. Since 1998, Karla Byrd has been the CUBM director, guiding the program through rough waters to calm seas. She has also been instrumental in founding the Pittsburgh Urban Heroes Program, and was recognized as an urban hero herself. Today John Stanko, the show's co-host, interviews Karla to talk about life, CUBM, what it takes to be an urban hero and the state of CUBM and adult education in general in the 21st century.
Dr. Todd Allen has been on the show before, talking about his Common Ground project that conducts bus tours of Civil Rights sites in the South. Today Todd joins the show in a different capacity a a 2015 Urban Hero. Todd will share with Karla and John what contributed to his work as a Hero and perhaps also give a preview of his talk as the commencement speaker for the 2015 CUBM graduation on May 4 at Eastminster Presbyterian Church in East Liberty at 6 PM.
Most 25 year old singer/song writers would be putting in All they have for their final push for a major label deal. After all, they usually snatch the singer when they’re younger. Not this one. Elizabeth Langham is doing the music to simply Create, Inspire and bring Positive vibes into people’s ears.
‘Too many people get caught up in the money making aspect of the industry and completely disregard why they even started to do music in the first place. Money is appealing, but I’d rather perform for free and inspire someone than to get caught up in the Diva role.’ –Elizabeth Langham
