March 6 MilMag Live! to cover race and segregation in Milwaukee
For years, the Milwaukee metro area has had a reputation as one of the most segregated in the United States. Though we broached the topic at our February event, we’re taking a deeper dive at the next MilMag Live! in tandem with our March feature story, and we want you to be there!
Join us on March 6 at the Back Room @ Colectivo to discuss how this problem came about, why it endures and what we can do as a community to break boundaries. We’ll kick off the discussion with an interview with photojournalist and writer Chris Arnade, whose photos of North Side residents who migrated from the South can be seen in the March issue of Milwaukee Magazine.

This month’s event is in collaboration with WUWM 89.7 FM – Milwaukee Public Radio’s upcoming Project Milwaukee series, and our own Carole Nicksin will be joined once again by co-moderators Mitch Teich, Bonnie North and LaToya Dennis of WUWM FM’s “Lake Effect” to lead the panel in an in-depth discussion of race and segregation in Milwaukee.
The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP to reserve a seat! Doors open at 6 p.m., and the panel discussion begins at 7 p.m. As always, audience participation is invited and encouraged. Last month’s discussion wouldn’t have been the same without our audience’s insightful and challenging input. We hope to see you there!
