Podcast: Voices in Union – Episode 090320
Voices in Union: with Reggie Jackson and Maria Hamilton – is a weekly podcast that focuses on the African American Diaspora in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
It connects local concerns to national trends on social justice, and educates the general population on the historical context of those issues. The program’s purpose is to build understanding, with a message of hope and reconciliation, and to offer underrepresented voices a platform to be heard.
- This episode includes a discussion about Maria’s recent trip to Washington DC to take part in the “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks” March, where she joined a nationwide gathering of mothers who lost children due to police brutality, and Reggie’s insight on the aftermath of the visit by Trump to Kenosha.
