MoWA: Virtual Talk with John Gurda

May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Virtual Talk with John Gurda | Neighbors and Strangers: The Challenges of Diversity in the Milwaukee Area
Tune in live with historian John Gurda as he discusses the history of immigration in Milwaukee. Each ethnic group has played a formative role in the making of Milwaukee, but harmony has not been the dominant theme in their complex coexistence. A pecking order developed early and changed often and differences became divisions. That pattern persists to the present, as Milwaukee, with the rest of America, works to reconcile the creative power of diversity with its equally abundant challenges.
This talk is funded in part by a grant from Wisconsin Humanities, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
