Meet at the entrance of Turner Hall (1034 N. 4th Street)

Join UWM history professor Aims McGuinness in Historic Turner Hall for an exploration of Milwaukee’s rich history of radical politics from 1848 to 1960. With a focus on the history of socialism in the city, we will read Turner Hall’s architecture, paintings, and stained glass windows for evidence of Milwaukee’s changing place in the history of revolution. Topics we will address include the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Civil War, the struggle for an 8-Hour Day, the Socialist Party, and the administrations of Milwaukee’s three socialist mayors.
