Project Milwaukee: Segregation Matters

For years, the Milwaukee metro area has had a reputation as one of the most segregated in the United States.

How did this complex problem come about, and why does it endure? How does it contribute to persistent poverty? Are there ways to break through the boundaries?

WUWM will seek answers to those questions in the next Project Milwaukee series. News reports and Lake Effect interviews will air Thursday, March 2 through Friday, March 10, 2017.

WUWM will also collaborate with Milwaukee Magazine to hold a community forum to look for solutions on March 6.
