Did you miss our Sherman Park community conversation? That's okay, watch it online below.
Milwaukee PBS and WUWM Radio joined forces to discuss what many believe are the underlying issues that provoked frustration and violence in Milwaukee's Sherman Park neighborhood in late August 2016. 10thirtysix ™ host Portia Young and WUWM's LaToya Dennis look at what is making a positive difference and what still needs work in terms of housing, unemployment, education, community pride and police relations – and the impact all of this has on neighborhoods and residents beyond Sherman Park.
On July 27 approximately 270 people came together for this community conversation. Dennis moderated a panel discussion with reporter James Causey, contributor to Black Nouveau on Milwaukee PBS; Reggie Jackson, Dr. James Cameron Legacy Foundation; and Laura Marshall, Sherman Park resident and blogger. They discussed what's working and what still needs work in terms of housing, unemployment, education, community pride and police relations – and the impact all of this has on Sherman Park and other nearby Milwaukee neighborhoods.
Dennis and Causey took questions and comments from the audience providing spirited interactivity. Panelist, community residents and government leaders added their thoughts to the discussion.
