March On Milwaukee 50th: 200 Nights of Freedom

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the March On Milwaukee, we're producing 200 Nights of Freedom, an initiative that will feature 200 consecutive nights of accessible public events that reflect upon, document, and build from the original spirit of the marches: Black power, dissent, and youth leadership.

From our kickoff on August 28th to the culminating celebration in April 2018, we will need a great deal of people power to pull off 200 Nights of Freedom.

The March On Milwaukee 50th planning group consists of a diverse range of contributors, including an intergenerational mix of Milwaukeeans with a wide variety of backgrounds and skill sets. Since the first planning meeting in February of 2016, we have been an entirely volunteer-run operation.

If you'd like to join the effort, no matter what you have to contribute, we'd be happy to have you.
