"Bronzeville: A Milwaukee Lifestyle" offers an eye-pleasing peek into Milwaukee's African American history. Between 1940 and 1960, Milwaukee's African American population swelled, leading to significant change in the city's rich culture. In the inner city of Milwaukee, African Americans enlivened the streets with night clubs, restaurants and social gathering centers that focused on family and community building. Join Ivory Abena Black, cultural anthropologist, in this lecture that will introduce you to the African Americans who made Bronzeville Milwaukee possible.
