African-American heritage will be celebrated with a parade in Downtown Pittsburgh today, starting at 11 a.m.
The African-American Heritage Day Parade, which will be held rain or shine, is being organized by the African-American Chamber of Commerce of Western Pennsylvania. Organizers, however, announced only that the parade would take place Downtown and could not be reached Friday for details regarding the start location and specific route.
Pittsburgh police also said they had not been informed of any street closures before and during the parade.
Nationally acclaimed sculptor Thaddeus G. Mosley will serve as the parade's grand marshal.
