History of Community Development in MKE

Milwaukee has a long and proud history of community action countering systemic racism, and displacement caused by gentrification and poverty. Many of the early community development corporations that led the way, no longer exist. Northwest Side CDC not only continues to exist but robustly serves the business and community interests of the greater North Side. But the story of persistence, adaptation and leadership is now part of the story of Milwaukee. I have spoken nationally, and locally and now have written a book about that struggle in Milwaukee led by courageous residents and business leaders to fight and change what was possible.

Dates and locations to be announced.
