An Apology

You may have seen readers respond to the photographic image on page 25 in the September 2017 issue of Milwaukee Magazine. We welcome honest feedback and, better yet, dialogue with our readers. We are deeply sorry that we offended anyone and extend a heartfelt apology. In no way did we mean to trivialize the message of Adam Stoner’s poignant mural “Devontay” about the legacy of black male incarceration in Milwaukee. We take very seriously our mission to build up the Milwaukee community. We very much appreciate that a reader raised her voice and started a conversation about this important issue. As members of the media, we value our opportunity and responsibility to advance understanding and illuminate issues impacting our community.
