Celebrating 28 days of Black history in Milwaukee

by Jan Schroder

For the eighth consecutive year, the city of Milwaukee will celebrate The 28 Days of Black History throughout February, national Black History Month.

Throughout February, key Black history makers who have ties to Milwaukee will be profiled on the city’s website, giving residents of all ages a chance to learn about and honor some of the 414’s most notable, unsung heroes.

Past honorees, including Maurice “Doc B” Beckley (one of Milwaukee’s first hip-hop DJs and founder of B-Boy Productions) and Dr. Denita R. Ball (the first Black woman to hold the post of Milwaukee County sheriff) can be viewed here.
