Title:Attitude study among Negro and White residents in the Milwaukee Negro residential areas
Date:1965
Description:

In 1965, the Milwaukee Journal conducted a study of Milwaukee neighborhoods with African American residents to determine how blacks and whites felt about particular problems facing the black community. Interviewing 500 people, 400 black and 100 white, the questions focused on individual attitudes toward Milwaukee's education system, police department, and transportation, as well as more serious problems such as housing segregation, the lack of job opportunities, and overall treatment by white residents. The report takes care to note that questions were rewritten and reviewed by African American community leaders in order to remove any sense of racial bias or preference. Published in October of 1965, the study provides one of the clearest windows into daily life for African Americans in Milwaukee. Journal Sentinel Inc., reproduced with permission. www.jsonline.com
