Title:News film clip of a press conference with Father Groppi and NAACP Youth Council Commandos announcing the second fair housing march, August 29, 1967 (with sound)
Date:1967 Aug. 29

Footage of a press conference where Father James Groppi, flanked by the Commandos, announced the second march for fair housing legislation to be held that night, August 29, 1967. Groppi clearly lays out the route of the march from the North Side to the South Side and Kosciuszko Park. In doing so calls the 16th Street Viaduct (or Bridge) "the Mason-Dixon line." Among the many things Groppi and Prentice McKinney comment upon are the local clergy, the coverage of events by the local press, Mayor Maier's position on city-wide versus county-wide fair housing legislation, the threat of violence during marches, and race relations in Milwaukee.

Daily footage extra. August 29, 1967, segment 11.
