A City Within A City

The phrase "Bronzeville," was a generic term given to an area in a city in which the majority was populated by African Americans and people of African descent.

 

Milwaukee Bronzeville was not solely occupied by newcomers from the South, but also included people from German, Jewish, Italian and other Eastern European backgrounds.

 

They made their homes there long before the influx of African Americans into the city and were widely interspersed throughout the community.
