RISE and SHINE: Bronzeville, Milwaukee
A Bronzeville Autumn Collaborative Project

Rise and Shine is the first episode in our series of short documentary videos about the re-emergence of the Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District in Milwaukee. Through Bronzeville Autumn, we are bringing together culture, history, art, commerce, and community rooted in this rich urban tradition. This first episode is comprised of interviews with key stakeholders including Ald. Milele Coggs of the City of Milwaukee, Deshea Agee of the King Drive Business Improvement District and Melissa Goins of CUPED Corporation, along with a window into the neighborhood and programs connected to this current cultural development transformation.

Bronzeville Autumn is an initiative of CUPED Corporation, Jazale’s Art Studio, Friends of Bronzeville and MKE-LAX, in collaboration with the City of Milwaukee, Alderwoman Milele Coggs and the Historic King Drive Business Improvement District. MKE-LAX is currently an artist-in-residence at Jazale’s Art Studio in Bronzeville.
