Civil Rights Activist Looks at Protests Then and Now


One of the people watching – and taking part in -- the Madison protests has been Margaret (Peggy) Rozga.

She’s an English professor at UW-Waukesha, but perhaps is best known as the widow of James Groppi. He was the former Catholic priest and activist who was a major leader in the civil rights movement in Milwaukee in the 1960s.
WUWM'S Ann-Elise Henzl spoke with Rozga about how the two political eras compare.

Ann-Elise Henzl became News Director in September 2017.
