Monday on Lake Effect: Quantifying Segregation, Eviction Defense Project, Civil Rights Movement

Mar 6, 2017

Monday on Lake Effect:

The Project Milwaukee series, Segregation Matters, continues. We examine data that demonstrates the extent of segregation in the city and a key factor that contributes to it. Later, a new project works to ease an issue facing the city’s impoverished neighborhoods: evictions. And a Milwaukee pastor and veteran of the Civil Rights movement offers his thoughts about the state of segregation in Milwaukee today.
