Tuesday marked the third anniversary of the unrest in Sherman Park—a day that captivated the attention of the city (and the world). To chronicle the occasion, the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service assembled neighbors and community leaders who are on the front lines in the Sherman Park community for a series of Facebook Lives.
Our guests talked about changes in the community since 2016. And they talked about things that have not changed.
Most important, they talked.
We invite you to watch. And listen.

•Conversation with Mildred Haynes, Sylville Smith’s mother
