Leroy Irvis (1919-2006), legendary Pennsylvania legislative leader; Percival L. Prattis (1895-1980), journalist with The Pittsburgh Courier and the first Black reporter to gain access to the U.S. House and Senate press galleries; and Tim Stevens (1945- ), past president of the Pittsburgh branch of the NAACP.
