The artists and writers at Three Rivers Publishing (3RP) welcome you to our websites. Through our artwork, writings and special projects we will present people, places and events that are both historically significant and socially relevant
We will tell the "human story", that which brings out the best in all of us and that which unite rather than divide.
Although much has been written, recorded and published, much remain unpublished, unrecognized, undervalued and unrecorded.
Too many stories remain untold, too many people unrecognized and too many places and events compromised, trivialized and reduced to historical footnotes.
Three Rivers Publishing goal is to inspire,to enlighten and to educate.
Peace to all who visit the website and remember what you
think you become.
Come back often because there is always something new at 3RP and remember comments and suggestions are welcome.

***Pittsburgh Pirates (Est. 1887)***
On September 1, 1971 in a game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Pittsburgh Pirates became the first Major League team to field an all black starting line-up. Managed by the "Whistling Irishman" Danny Murtaugh, the 1971 Pirates represented baseball's most heavily integrated team, with Blacks and Latinos players comprising nearly fifty percent (50%) of the roster. Talented, confident and proud, the 1971 Pirates went on to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1971 World Series.
