Description

March On Milwaukee 50th anniversary, Pt. 1

This is one of two March On Milwaukee 50th tours, whose route and itinerary are inspired by Milwaukee’s Open Housing Marches in 1967/68. As we traverse the route of the first march, taking cues from 200 Nights of Freedom, the tour will focus on the themes “Recognition & Re-ignition.” This will include historic locations and insight from elders who participated in the marches in the NAACP Youth Council and Commandos. Additionally, we will learn about organizing and activism taking place in Milwaukee today.

The tour will include 7 stops, as well as food/snacks along the route. Be prepared to get off the bus and explore. The group will meet at Haymarket Square Park on the corner of McKinley and Old World Third, we will leave right at 10am so please arrive a little early to register - free street parking is available in the area.

The second tour in this series will take place on November 4th.

-MLK Drive & North Avenue (Roots of Bronzeville)
-Former site of Freedom House II (NAACP Youth Council/Commandos)
