Black Milwaukee and Urban African-American History
Over the past twenty years, Black Milwaukee has had a major impact in the fields of African American and American labor history, but its influence on students of urban history has been more ambiguous. Despite the significant growth over the past twenty years in the study of African Americans in cities, the subfields remain segregated. More recent work has made successful attempts to merge the study of change within American cities with an analysis of the role of African Americans in these processes. These studies' reliance on Black Milwaukee as a model shows its continuing relevance.
