We learn how LiberateMKE is campaigning to fund community programs that advance safety and crime prevention. Then, we look at Milwaukee Rep’s “We Rise” series of virtual events celebrating Black History Month. The President of the Marcus Center talks about advancing racial equity in the performing arts. Plus Bubbler Talk clears up some muddled history about why we put soda in our Wisconsin Old Fashioneds.
