All of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus, since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ. There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor free, there can be neither male nor female -- for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28

The March on Milwaukee: 50th Anniversary Coordinating Committee is hosting the 200 Nights of Freedom Kick-Off in the Rotunda at City Hall (200 East Wells Street) on August 28, 2017, from 5:30-8:00pm. 

This event kicks off 200 Nights of Freedom, an initiative recognizing our local civil rights heroes and re-igniting Milwaukee's simmering spirit of activism through 200 nights of public events, policy initiatives, digital dialogue, and other programming.

Networking and socializing begins at 5:30pm and the evening’s program will run from 6:00-7:30pm. Refreshments will be provided. Speakers include NAACP Youth Council members and Commandos, as well as young activists, with a key note speech from Congresswoman Gwen Moore.

The March on Milwaukee 50th Coordinating Committee is an intergenerational mix of artists, activists, professionals, academics, and elders who participated in the original marches.

Historical context:
Beginning on August 28, 1967, the Milwaukee NAACP Youth Council/Commandos, Father James Groppi, Alderperson Vel Phillips and a host of activists and community members marched for over 200 consecutive nights to demand an end to housing segregation. The marches signified Milwaukee’s contribution to the Black Freedom Movement in America and helped inspire federal fair housing legislation. This moment was indeed the pinnacle of civil rights activism in Milwaukee.
