Saturday, February 25, 2017 

9:00am to 4:15pm

Centennial Hall

738 N. 8th Street, Milwaukee WI 53202

Our annual Gathering celebrates the legacy of America’s Black Holocaust Museum founder, Dr. James Cameron. In his honor, we bring together people from all corners of Greater Milwaukee for learning and fellowship.

The theme of this year’s event is “Let’s Face It: How Communities Remember and Repair Racial Trauma.

MORNING SESSION: Open to Organizational Sponsors and the Public. Attendees see a sneak preview screening of the new documentary Always In Season. Immediately following the film, there will be an audience talkback with the film’s director. She will be joined on stage by experts from around the country and Greater Milwaukee who will briefly introduce their communities’ commemorative projects, then take questions and comments from the audience.

AFTERNOON SESSION: Open to Organizational Sponsors Only. Members of our co-sponsoring organizations attend the Founder’s Day Luncheon and Keynote Address, followed by intimate Roundtable Discussions with experts from across the country sharing restorative experiences from their communities.
