Milwaukee's Bronzeville was a community devoted to close nuclear and extended families. Home to lower, middle and upper classes, African Americans offered guidance to all who lived there and furthered the community progress and relationships.


This laid the foundation for a reliable society in which people assisted each other in child rearing, job placement, tutoring, money lending, repair services, medical assistance and social interactions.


A city within a city full of leadership, a sense of community and a focus on entrepreneurship would lead to a high number of African American owned businesses and entertainment venues.
