Special Guest at Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin

March 1, 2017Keith

Edgewood College planned a full day surrounding MILWAUKEE 53206.  The Dominican Catholic college long ago committed itself to issues of social justice and the faculty and students greeted me and Beverly Walker, who is featured in MILWAUKEE 53206, with a warm welcome.  The campus theater was packed for the screening, and afterwards Beverly, Prestisa (Beverly’s oldest daughter), and I shared a panel discussion with local criminal reform activists, Sister Maureen McDonnell, Gilman Halsted, former WPR criminal justice reporter, and Roderick “Rudy” Bankston, a community liaison for MMSD who was formerly incarcerated for 20 years and who knew Beverly Walker’s husband personally from his time in the state prison system.
