We the 350 is a narrative-based performance exploring themes of racism, poverty, and incarceration in Wisconsin. The content of the performance is based on interviews done with Black activists in Wisconsin about their experiences as youth and adults living in some of the most racially segregated and disparate cities (Milwaukee and Madison) in the country. The performance paints a compelling picture of what the intersections between racism, poverty, and disparate incarceration rates for Wisconsin’s Black population look like in someone’s daily life. We the 350 explores how institutions like law enforcement and schools rely on the intersection of racism, poverty, and other forms of oppression to maintain and contribute to racially disparate arrest and incarceration rates.
