Crossing the Line: The Milwaukee Fair Housing Marches of 1967-1968

UW-Waukesha will host the Wisconsin Historical Society’s traveling display Crossing the Line: The Milwaukee Fair Housing Marches of 1967-1968 during the 2017 Festival.

The traveling display “Crossing the Line: The Milwaukee Fair Housing Marches of 1967-1968” commemorates the 50th anniversary of Milwaukee’s civil rights marches by examining the practices and prejudices that led to segregation in Milwaukee and chronicling the school desegregation and fair housing movements of the 1960s. It also asks the question, “What can you do to end segregation today?”
