Black History Month Kick-Off Event: We the 350

  • We the 350 Slider Image

We the 350 is a narrative-based performance exploring themes of racism, poverty, and incarceration in Wisconsin. The content of the 45 minute performance is based in interviews done with Black activists in Wisconsin about their experiences as youth and adults living in some of the most racially segregated (Milwaukee) and racially disparate (Madison) cities in the country. The performance paints a compelling picture of what the intersections between racism, poverty, and disparate incarceration rates Wisconsin's Black population look like in someone's daily life. We the 350 explores the ways that state structures rely on intersections between race and class, along with many other intersections, to maintain racially disparate arrest and incarceration rates in Wisconsin. 

Please be advised that the show includes narratives describing physical, mental, and sexual violence.
