Project Milwaukee: In-depth reporting on vital issues in the region.

What the Races Think of Each Other


Milwaukee has long held a reputation of being segregated: with blacks living primarily on the north side and whites on the south.

In today’s installment of Project Milwaukee: Black and White, WUWM’s Marti Mikkelson visited establishments on both sides of town, to ask blacks and whites about their interactions with each other.

The Omega restaurant on the south side draws a white clientele.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
