About the Event

The Waukesha Public Library will host Dr. Derek Handley, Professor of English at UW-Milwaukee who will speak about the Mapping Racism and Resistance research project. This project represents the first effort to comprehensively document and map all racial housing covenants in Milwaukee County. The goal is to analyze and visualize the historical geographics of racial covenants, while also uncovering Black resistance to such discrimination and exploring its impact on shaping racial justice movements today.

Here's a Journal Sentinel link to learn more about the Mapping Racism project and the Facebook event link as well. It'll be a fascinating talk with strong local relevance for the Greater Milwaukee area!
