Settlement at Hillsboro, WI

Descendants of the original settlers of Wisconsin’s Cheyenne Valley gathered at Cardinal Stritch University last year to talk about their childhoods in and around Hillsboro, once Wisconsin’s largest African American settlement. We heard the voices of Wilbur Arms, Claude Bugbee, Barb Stanek, Rita Marie Witter, Iva Mae Roberts Storey and Mike Thompson. Jane Hampden produced our feature, which originally aired in 2008.
