The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel will host a panel discussion — “Housing and Segregation in Milwaukee, Then and Now” — on Sept. 27. The event is the first of six community discussions tied into the ongoing “50-Year Ache” series, which examines a knot of issues that affect the community, such as housing, jobs, crime and education. For decades, Milwaukee has had one of the nation's widest white-to-black home ownership gaps; African-American homeownership has never been above 50%.
After three days of rioting in Milwaukee 50 years ago, a young, fiery, white priest rallied African-Americans together to protest the harassment of blacks by police and the slow movement of open housing laws. On Aug, 28, 1967, Father James E. Groppi, the NAACP Youth Council, Ald. Vel Phillips and a host of young community leaders would start the first of 200 consecutive days of marches to push for fair housing legislation.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Lucia Rogers looked at the black-and-white photo — more familiar to her than to anyone else who knows the history of Milwaukee's open housing marches. A little girl in a paisley dress is shrouded in darkness. Her eyes look downward. Her hands grasp the hand of a white man dressed in black. His face is unseen, but it is Father James E. Groppi, who helped lead the 200 nights of marches 50 years ago. As Rogers looked at the photo, her eyes welled with tears. She is the little girl.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
