Sherman Park: A Legacy of Diversity in Milwaukee by Paul H. Geenen
Racial tensions and violence in the south drove nearly thirty thousand African Americans north to Milwaukee in the 1960s. Mixed-race families found support in Sherman Park, and activists of all races fought against discrimination in housing, schools, and public transit through the Sherman Park Community Association. The author (who raised four children in Sherman Park) traces the neighborhood's progress and diversity, detailing how residents blazed integration trails far ahead of greater Milwaukee and the country.
