When and Where: Monday at Bridges in the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center

What’s B-PEP? The Black Political Empowerment Project was launched in 1986 by chairman and CEO Tim Stevens. The primary goal of B-PEP is to increase political awareness and encourage voting in every election within the African-American community.

Quite a crowd: Seen enjoying the six-hour jazz marathon — including performances by Roger Humphries & the RH Factor, Etta Cox and Michele Bensen — were Jon Burnett, Bob Allen, Debbie Norrell, Larry Davis, David Spurgeon, Lorraine Scarsky, Marlene Bransom, Sherry Taylor and Chris Moore.

A Moment with Tim Stevens: “If we are able to mobilize the African-American community and make our voices heard through our votes, we will see changes to many of the problems plaguing our communities. I believe that with every complaint brought, there is a possibility to find a solution.”
