Friday on Lake Effect: Segregation Matters Live Forum

Mar 9, 2017

Friday on Lake Effect:

WUWM has been taking a comprehensive look at segregation in the Milwaukee area in our latest Project Milwaukee series, Segregation Matters. Between reports on WUWM news and interviews on Lake Effect, we looked at how segregation can be quantified, how it's perpetuated, and its costs and effects on the community. To further investigate the issue, WUWM assembled a forum of experts to talk about the nature of segregation, and the next steps we should take to reverse the trend. The event was produced in partnership with Milwaukee Magazine as part of the MilMag Live! series, and was moderated by Lake Effect's Mitch Teich and WUWM reporter, LaToya Dennis.

Guests:

  • Pamela Malone, professor, Milwaukee Area Technical College
  • Reggie Jackson, head griot, America's Black Holocaust Museum
  • Paul Decker, board chair, Waukesha County Board of Supervisors
  • Venice Williams, executive director, Alice's Garden Urban Farm
