Sunday Forum: What Happened to Us?

December 17, 2017 @ 10:10 am - 10:55 am

First Unitarian Church of Milwaukee

Presenter: James Causey, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer.

“What happened to us?” is the title of Journal Sentinel writer James Causey’s series, where he follows the lives of some of his former classmates from Samuel Clemens elementary school. He writes about what has happened to them throughout their lives. Many of them struggled, while some found success.

He will discuss Milwaukee’s long-standing poverty and segregation issues, and programs in other cities he visited that work. Can these programs be duplicated here? What are the steps that need to be taken to help Milwaukee’s inner-city?

Sunday Forum is a Sunday morning lecture series at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee that showcases provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: the arts, politics, the environment, health issues, education and more. Click here for a full list of coming Forum programs . The Forum — in Max Otto Hall on our second floor — begins at 10:10 a.m. and lasts about 45 minutes. Speakers give a 30-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. Coffee is served. Childcare is available.

Program host: Jerry Fredrickson
