Through One City's Eyes: Race Relations in America's Heartland

This documentary video uses compelling personal stories of Milwaukeeans to describe the civil rights movement in Milwaukee over the past thirty years. Originally envisioned as a master's thesis for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee program, this project expanded in scope to include a classroom series, web page, a radio series, and ten community forums which encouraged the community to become actively engaged in a renewed race-relations dialogue.

Produced by the Duncan Group, this legacy project is the culmination of committed community support and involvement, and has won a number of regional and state awards.

Originally submitted by: Thomas M. Barrett, Representative (5th District).
