Black Nouveau: COVID Conversations
Thursday, January 14, 7:30 PM, Ch 10.1

COVID-19 has devastated Milwaukee’s African American community. Black Wisconsinites are disproportionately affected and dying from the virus. Many of the survivors face unique physical and mental health challenges.

We discuss some of those challenges with five Milwaukeeans who contracted the virus: State Rep. David Bowen, political consultant Arkesia Jackson, Rev. Greg Lewis, and mental health clinicians Simmone Kilgore and Arnitta Holiman.

The program is co-moderated by Arnitta Holliman and Earl Arms, host of MKE PBS’ Black Nouveau.
Implicit Bias Town Hall Event
Wednesday, January 27, 6:00 PM
Online event - Register 

The death of George Floyd and other racial injustices brought to light last year have many wondering about their own perspective on these issues and why they think the way they do. Milwaukee PBS’ Black Nouveau offers a virtual event to help explore that subject. 

The human experience is biased; we all have points of view shaped by our experiences. Sometimes, our “implicit biases” negatively affect the way we interact with others.

Kima and Dasha Kelly Hamilton guide attendees through “Understanding Implicit Bias,” a 90-minute interactive event that will help people understand unconscious patterns and stereotypes we develop that affect individuals, attitudes and actions.

To participate, register here.

During the discussion, attendees will have a chance to interact with the panelists.
