Beginning with haircuts at Running Rebels, 1300 W. Fond Du Lac Ave., hundreds of black young people spent a day interacting with older mentors. The group took official photos at the Milwaukee Art Museum and dined at the Chic Café, where they were entertained by Cigarette Break featuring Joe Jordan and Adi Amour, and enjoyed a special performance by Lil Vic. The event was organized by Andre Lee Ellis as part of the “We Got This” campaign, whose mission is to “incorporate the ‘neighbor’ back into our ‘hoods’ and recreate a real sense of neighborhood,” according to the group’s website.
