The Heartland – Marquise Mays (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

Highlighting both the joys and trials of growing up Black in the Midwest, three Black Milwaukee residents confront & reconcile the unrequited love between them and their city. Separated into three chapters, we explore the childhood experience for Black kids. From the moments when they lost their innocence to the outwardly expression that defined their voices, Black kids in this city proclaim that Milwaukee will forever be theirs. 2020; 24 min.
