Photo Essay: 32nd Annual Black & White Ball

The Milwaukee Urban League’s fundraising gala highlighted the organization’s nearly one hundred year effort to support the local African American community.

More than one thousand guests attended the 32nd Annual Black & White Ball, which featured a ceremonial changing of the guard as Dr. Eve M. Hall took on her leadership role as the new President and CEO.

These images feature highlights from the black-tie event held on June 10 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, with a performance of Motown hits from legendary rhythm and blues group The Spinners.
