Crossing the Line: Milwaukee’s Open
Housing Marches 50 Years Later X N127
Patrick Jones, Margaret Rozga, Sheri Williams Pannell
To complement the Wisconsin Historical Society’s
Crossing the Lines exhibit about Milwaukee’s open
housing marches, this panel offers the insights of a
participant, writer, and scholar. Playwright, director,
and performer Sheri Williams Pannell is the author of
Bronzeville, a play set in Milwaukee’s African American
neighborhood in the 1950s. Margaret (Peggy) Rozga, a
participant in the marches, has written a play and book of
poetry, 200 Nights and One Day, about that experience.
Patrick Jones, professor at the University of NebraskaLincoln,
authored Selma of the North, a history of the
open housing campaigns
