A distinguished journalist, Mr. Bolden was one of the first two African-American accredited correspondents during WW II. He covered the Buffalo Soldiers and Tuskegee Airmen, reporting from India, Burma and China. Later he became City Editor of the Pittsburgh Courier. The marker is situated in front of the former site of the original Pittsburgh Courier and across from the Centre Avenue YMCA, two influential Hill District institutions.
