District 6 - Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs

Bronzeville Week 2017

 Freedom Scholarship Essay Contest Logo 

The Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District is a City of Milwaukee redevelopment initiative inspired by Milwaukee’s original Bronzeville District of the early to mid 1900’s.

The primary African-American economic and social hub of its time, Bronzeville brought all ethnicities together to celebrate African-American culture - highlighting jazz, blues and the arts. Those living in Bronzeville recall a commercial corridor with nightclubs such as Metropole Club and the Moon Glow featuring performances by such pioneers as Billie Holliday, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, and Nat “King” Cole, to mention a few.

A major objective of this contest is to assist our college bound recent high school graduates in the Milwaukee area to better understand where their paths lead. We hope that this contest will help our youth appreciate the sacrifice that African-American men and women of our past have made, and recognize their duty to continue the legacy of freedom through their activism and vigilance.

Apply Online for City Boards and Commissions

Residents can apply online to quickly and easily place their names in nomination for appointments to serve on city boards and commissions.

Alderwoman Coggs has been an early and strong voice in the city for increasing and expanding community access and involvement in the boards and commissions appointment process, and she encourages residents to get involved and consider submitting their name for consideration using the new options. “The public deserves a nomination system that is more accessible and transparent, and one that will include potential board and commission candidates from across the entire city,” she said. “Residents who want to become more civically active and involved should take advantage of this new process.”

Safe Sleep for Your Baby

The City of Milwaukee Health Department strongly advises parents NOT to share a bed with their infant. This is based on an American Academy of Pediatrics 2005 Policy Statement that states that the “risk of SIDS has been shown to be reduced when the infant sleeps in the same room as the mother,” but the AAP recommends that infants not share a bed with parents or anyone else, due to proven hazards. Click here to view a video that offers some advice on how to avoid the problems associated with “co-sleeping” with infants.
