Gallery Talk with Reggie Jackson. Designed for teachers and artist educators, this dynamic workshop reveals the forces that created residential segregation in Milwaukee. The Hidden Impact of Segregation covers decades of intentional policies along with de-industrialization that have negatively impacted African American and immigrant communities as we know them today. This session is FREE and open to the public. Immediately after the session, Reggie will hold a Q and A, and Arts @ Large will facilitate a brainstorming session to explore curricular ties to the classroom. Reggie Jackson is renowned educator and historian who currently serves as the Head Griot at America's Black Holocaust Museum and the 2015 winner of the Eliminating Racism Award from southeast Wisconsin's YWCA.
