|Title:||The housing of Negroes in Milwaukee, 1955|
Across the United States, discriminatory housing practices sought to restrict the settlement of "undesireable" people in certain neighborhoods, resulting in the confinement of people, largely African American, into racial enclaves. In Milwaukee, this practice was particularly widespread and became the primary focus of many organizations, including the Milwaukee Urban League. In 1955, the Intercollegiate Council on Intergroup Relations, a subgroup of the Human Relations Committee of Milwaukee area colleges, researched the housing situation of Milwaukee's black community. The report, prepared in cooperation with the Urban League's Executive Secretary, William Kelley, details the difficulties facing African Americans in 1950s Milwaukee.
