Event Details

This month's Monday Motivation program is a screening of the documentary MILWAUKEE 53206. We will watch the 55 min film, followed by group discussion. This event is sponsored by the Cedarburg Friends of the Library. No registration is required.

Film description:

The United States has the most prisoners of any nation in the world both in raw numbers and by percentage of the population. These numbers are further compounded within Milwaukee’s mostly African-American 53206 ZIP code, where 62% of adult men have spent time in prison, making MILWAUKEE 53206 the most incarcerated ZIP code in the nation.

MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles the lives of those affected by incarceration in America’s most incarcerated ZIP code. Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, we witness the high toll mass incarceration takes on individuals and families that make up the community. The film not only examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206, but also illuminates the story of people from across the United States who live with the daily affects of mass incarceration.
