PROJECT MILWAUKEE: BLACK MEN IN PRISON
Why are so many Wisconsinites behind bars? And, what are the costs?

WUWM & MPTV special series runs for six months - starting November 11, 2013.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Springing from conversations with concerned community members, WUWM journalists developed Project Milwaukee -- in-depth reporting on vital issues in the region. Each Project Milwaukee consists of WUWM News reporters and Lake Effect producers teaming up to create a series of interviews and reports on a specific topic culminating in a public forum or live broadcast.

WUWM tackles subjects of importance to southeastern Wisconsin by focusing on issues that warrant extensive coverage. The topics chosen are based on concerns we've heard from residents and community leaders.

WUWM hopes that our coverage helps to further the understanding of broad, significant subjects, and encourages additional debate in the community.

WUWM's Project Milwaukee. Our region. Our future.
