Individuals and institutions with connections to Milwaukee who have helped make Black History are being featured throughout February (Black History Month) on the City of Milwaukee website’s main page and on the City Channel.
The “28 Days of Black History” information campaign will again include bios and photos of honored people and institutions featured daily on the main page (www.city.milwaukee.gov) and the City Channel, and video clips of past Black History celebrations held at City Hall will also be aired on the City Channel (channel 25 on Spectrum Cable, channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse and also available via streaming at www.city.milwaukee.gov/channel25).
This year’s 28 Days of Black History theme is ‘A Nod to the Past,” and Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs and Alderwoman Chantia Lewis are serving as this year’s co-coordinators.
“We celebrate Black History every day, but especially throughout February as a way to recognize the resilience, courage, excellence and brilliance of Milwaukee’s rich African-American culture,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “I strongly encourage everyone to join us in this year’s virtual celebration by visiting the city main page and the City Channel throughout the month.”
