Monday on Lake Effect: Couture Groundbreaking, LGBTQ History, Baseball’s Negro Leagues, Bubbler Talk, Milwaukee Shipwreck Tours

We’ll also learn about some of Wisconsin’s history with LGBTQ rights. Then, we’ll learn about Baseball’s Negro Leagues and why the Milwaukee streetcar is paying tribute to its players. Bubbler Talk explores some of the first Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee. Plus, we’ll look at a new ghost tour of Lake Michigan and get a taste of some of the maritime disasters featured on the tour.
