What really happened during Milwaukee’s
What really happened during Milwaukee’s Open Housing Marches of 1967-1968? What happened after the 1968 Open Housing Law was passed? Did things change? Join us to learn more about the current state of segregation in Milwaukee, how that was shaped by the 1968 Open Housing Law, and where we go from here.
Marc Levine from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Center for Economic Development will address growth of entrenched segregation and racial inequality in Milwaukee since the 1970s. Margaret Rozga will discuss her involvement with Milwaukee’s NAACP Youth Council, her activism during and after the Open Housing Marches with late husband Father James Groppi and her continued social justice work. Bill Tisdale from Milwaukee’s Fair Housing Council will discuss the organization’s role and advocacy work in the past, present, and looking to the future.
