“The Hidden Impacts of Segregation in Ozaukee County,” a presentation by guest speaker Reginald Jackson, is the topic of the Sunday service at Unitarian Church North on July 23. The service begins at 10 a.m. at the church, 13800 N. Port Washington Rd. Visitors are always welcome.
Reginald Jackson chairs the board of the Dr. James Cameron Legacy Foundation, the parent organization of America’s Black Holocaust Museum. His presentation covers the history and long-term processes that artificially created segregation in America. Jackson will focus on the demographics of the local region, and how it differs from similar highly-segregated metropolitan areas such as Chicago and Detroit. He analyzes the negative impacts of this segregation and how people are affected by living in segregated spaces. The service will include time for audience response.
Reginald Jackson is a much-sought-after speaker, sharing little-known stories in African-American history at schools, libraries, churches and businesses. Jackson serves on the board of Rid Racism Milwaukee, the Zeidler Center for Public Discussion, and the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
