Wisconsin General Baptist State Convention Host Screening of Milwaukee 53206: A Community Serves Time
The gym at Cannon Baptist Church on Milwaukee’s northside was packed recently with community advocates, and citizens from zip codes throughout Milwaukee County and neighboring suburbs who came to watch the soul-searching documentary Milwaukee 53206.

Be still for a while and praise God for His favor, His grace and His awesomeness. God is able to do the impossible and is always near. He loves us unconditionally.

African Americans have always honored the traditions of family, food, song and spirituality. So Thanksgiving and Christmas are ripe with memories that bridge our past to the present. Traditions bind families and friends, creating a connectedness that transitions even life itself. Experts say that it is also during these activities that family beliefs and values are transferred as children witness the importance of friendship, unity and sharing.
