MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee has been called one of the most segregated cities in America, and one of the worst places for black people to live and raise their families. With this in mind, today’s Beats Me question put me in the position to try and offer some insight into this question:
What’s the cultural experience for being black and male in Milwaukee?
Of course, there isn’t one black experience. So, I sat down with four black males of different ages and professions to discuss the topic. I talked to a high school senior, a medical student, an ACLU organizer, and the executive director of the Near West Side Partners.
