"PCRG challenges financial institution lending practices,” Pittsburgh, Dec. 22, 1993.

Stanley Lowe, center, organized the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG) to challenge financial institution lending practices that had ignored low-income and African American neighborhoods for years.  In this photo, he, along with fellow activists Harriet Henzon, left, and Aggie Brose, right, react to a new report that identifies home mortgage lending inequalities.  By the end of the 1990s, banks and community organizations were working together to increase African American homeownership in Pittsburgh.
