Last month 10thirtysix, Milwaukee PBS' signature news magazine, broadcast a live one hour edition that focused on the effects of lead on our health.  10thirtysix host Portia Young was joined by Milwaukee PBS producers and reporters Joanne Williams and Mark Siegrist, Journal Sentinel Columnist James Causey and WUWM’s Susan Bence, along with experts from Children’s Hospital, Aurora Health Care and Sixteenth Street Community Health Center.  If you missed the lead special or any other episodes of the series you can catch up any time by going to: http://www.milwaukeepbs.org/local-programs/programs/10thirtysix

On the upcoming April 21 edition of 10thirtysix, the program takes an in depth look at immigration.   ¡Adelante! producer and host Patricia Gomez spent several days with an undocumented local family whose four children are American citizens.  In the 10thirtysix segment, the family members speak openly about their fears of being arrested and deported.   10thirtysix also takes a look at the creation of a mural that will be installed on a wall of the Butters Fetting building on Mitchell and 1st Street.  The mural, which will be about  60 feet long, traces the history of the Latino community in Milwaukee beginning with the migrant farm worker movement.  The mural was researched and painted by college and high school students under the supervision of UWM Art Professor Raoul Deal.  We talk with Deal, students and even one of the subjects of the mural.
