Register for a dynamic event being hosted by America's Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) on Sat. Feb 28 from 1 to 5 pm at MKE's Central Library's Centennial Hall.

The keynoter will be world-famous author/historian/educator Dr. James Loewen, who will talk about the evolution and impact of "sundown towns" from the days when northern towns literally posted signs letting African -Americans know they weren't welcome after dark to today's more subtle ways of enforcing segregation.

There will also be music, food, dialog and a chance to learn more about how our community became so racially divided. Genl admission is $35, but students, seniors and unemployed folks can attend for $15. Even if you can't attend, please help us spread the word to others by forwarding this email to those in your network or by posting on your Facebook timeline. Thanks so much -- and hope to see you there!
