ADPR 4750: Home

About this guide

This guide was written for Dr. Kevin Thomas' fall 2020 ADPR 4750 course, Strategic Communication in a Culturally Diverse Marketplace.  The class is working with the client Walnut Way, a non-profit in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood of Milwaukee.

Below are some resources about Walnut Way, the issues affecting minority neighborhoods, and Milwaukee in general.

About Milwaukee

Milwaukee neighborhood profiles

Above all, try to make a trip to the Memorial Reserves Desk (2nd floor near the Bridge) and see the John Gurda book on Milwaukee's neighborhoods.  He's a local historian, and his book is worth the effort.  (Sadly, it is not available as an ebook.)
