Milwaukee Local News Station Interviews Directors of EHRP-Supported Film
During the April primary when that first COVID-19 wave hit Wisconsin, some voters felt they risked their lives to cast a ballot. Researchers from the Brennan Center for Justice estimate the Primary disenfranchised nearly 16 percent of Black voters in Milwaukee.
Directors with 371 Productions created a short film called “Metcalfe Park: Black Vote Rising” to tell that story. The documentary highlights how a mother and daughter in Milwaukee work to prevent it from happening again during the General Election.
The nearly 10-minute film profiles Melody McCurtis and her mom, Danell Cross, as they go door to door in the Metcalfe Park neighborhood encouraging neighbors to come up with a voting plan.
