“Shepherd Express: Milwaukee’s Forum for Progress”
March 14, 2021 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dave Luhrssen, Managing Editor.
The Shepherd Express has a long history dating back to the early 1980s. Over the years, the Shepherd Express grew into Wisconsin’s third largest newspaper in circulation and became a forum for Milwaukee’s music scene, performing arts, and progressive politics. When COVID-19 struck Wisconsin, the Shepherd Express suspended its weekly print edition and pivoted to becoming a daily website. In August, defying the shopworn cliché that “print is dead,” the Shepherd Express returned to the physical world as a glossy monthly magazine that preserves familiar aspects of the old newspaper packaged in a new format.

Sign up for the Sunday Forum on Zoom & YouTube Live HERE.
For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held online via Zoom and YouTube Live at 11:00 a.m. during the regular church year. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
