Civil Saturday: Bakery Square Sit-In


On Saturday, June 6th, B.Y.E. (Black, Young, & Educated) organized a beautiful, peaceful protest at Bakery Square and Penn Avenue.

Black, Young, & Educated, an organization started by five teenagers, have organized “Civil Saturdays” throughout Pittsburgh.

The Mission of B.Y.E is to educate minority youth on topics that affect their everyday lives, to give them better/more accessible opportunities, more productive things to attend in Pittsburgh, and support for anything they will need.
