Big idea. I'm in, if yinz are serious.
It is a year-long, or, multi-year effort. LaTrenda Leonard Sherrill should be the FOUNDING and first DEAN of studies. Kick-off / orientation should be on MLK day 2020. Intensive courses and engagement in Feb 2020. For good or bad, that time is going to bring a big storm of politics in advance of the 2020 primary and general elections.
Community Learning Outreach Hub, my hobby domain, CLOH.org, can publish the course notes, and I'll help with a few waves of invites to Libertarians, Indies, Socialists, Liberals, Conservatives, Greens, Ds and Rs.
Agree with chatter above: POLITICAL WILL is a huge element that is missing, in this front, and within some others -- sadly.
What was once called the Black & White Reunion, now re-branded, as well as PA Interfaith Impact Network could be early supporters. A long list of others could be gathered by end of Black History Month 2019.
Weekly conference calls, say 10:30 pm on a week night, would be a good way to be open and transparent.
FWIW, my calling is within the theme of "Playing Well with Others."

It would be nice for black history month if white leaders In Pittsburgh (corporate, electeds, and nonprofit CEOs) went thru racial equity training together as a cohort. No more new leadership trainings for black people, y’all just caucus and learn about the system that y’all facilitate and uphold.
Now that would be something.
Glory years. They are ahead of us, yet!
Pittsburgh, we're going to bring back the big aquatic events, with a modern twist and spin of a SKWIM disk. In 2019, we have some news to share, as of the end of January. Stay tuned.
Thanks to a friend and fellow coach, S, for sending along the pointer to this article.
Stay in tune with Coach Mark as we plan for the summer.

All are invited for a quick swim lesson, game introduction and some informal fun at the pool playing SKWIM. Adults and kids of all ages and abilities. Building on SKWIM's first Sunday practice at Moon HS pool (October 21, 2018), next time is 2-4 pm on November 11. They have fins at the pool that you can borrow. Just come with a can-do attitude and your swim suit and towel.
Learn more about SKWIM, either before or after a practice, check out the lessons at https://SKWIM.us.
Lifeguards, triathletes, hockey players, basketball players and coaches as well as adults, parents, teachers, guardians and kids — of course — come to a fun water workout on Friday evenings when there isn’t a home football game at Mt. Lebanon’s indoor, new, high school swim pool from 7:30 to 9 pm. Show up at 7:15 if you can so we can transition into activities and have some time to chat before we begin.

Some people say that there is a crisis in youth sports participation. To be sure, the levels of this crisis — or not — depend upon many factors including location, coaching, other opportunities, support from the society and culture, school district and more.
Overall retention has stayed pretty constant around 70%. USA Swimming had its second best year ever in 2017 with 74.2%. Basically means that 7 out of 10 athletes stay with the sport from one year to the next.
The 12-Under retention levels within USA Swimming hovers around 60%. Again 6-out-of-10 12-Unders athletes stay with the sport. Colleagues in other sports say they’d love to have that retention rate for younger kids.
And most of you already know that if a 13-Over-Swimmer is with your team, they are more than likely to stay with your team, since the retention hovers around 90%.
