VENUE CHANGE, Paint Day: Ed Bradley

Join us for a free, public community paint day! Be a part of the new mural to honor Ed Bradley, a leading African-American journalist best known as one of anchors of the award-winning news program 60 Minutes. He grew up in Belmont and attended St. Thomas More High School, and worked as 6th grade teacher at the Mann School (now Mastery Charter School – Mann Campus) in the 1960s after earning a degree in education from Cheyney State College. Bradley began his career in media on WDAS as a disc jockey and news reporter in Philadelphia.

The mural, by artist Ernel Martinez, will be installed at 949 Belmont Avenue.
