If you want to bone up on the subject I recommend reading Selma of the North and watching Vel Phillips: Dream Big Dreams

We're also in the middle of the 50th anniversary of Fair Housing Marches, there are events going on if you are interested in learning more in person.

Second this as well. John Gurda is one of the most well-known Milwaukee Historians.

For a college class focused on Milwaukee we read John Gurda's The Making of Milwaukee and Patrick Jones' The Selma of the North, which as you guest it, talks about the civil rights movement here in Milwaukee.

Both are quick reads that are easily available and relatively inexpensive. If you live in this city and want to know more these are two great places to learn about the history.
