“We don’t go past the bridge”
This is part four of TCD’s podcast series “We don’t go past the bridge”: A Discussion on Race in Milwaukee. Click here for part one with Dasha Kelly, here for part two with Tommy Walls, Jr., and here for part three with Tony Baez.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America is a great organization that does a lot of good for many people all over the country. And it’s an organization that is of particular importance right here in Milwaukee.
“They really, really help the community a lot,” he said. “I feel like if I never went to the Boys & Girls Clubs, I wouldn’t be the Youth of the Year; I know that.”
One of the problems involving race that we’ve been discussing in this series is the issue of segregation in Milwaukee, as studies have indicated that Milwaukee is the most segregated city in the country. Dewayne and I discussed this problem, along with last year’s incident at Mayfair and he shared his perspective on some of the things he’s seen.
“Backstage with Mark Metcalf” is recorded at the ThirdCoast Digest office at the Grand Avenue Mall.
