Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Milwaukee Public Museum | Kids Out and About Milwaukee

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Milwaukee Public Museum

Stop by the Watson House in the Streets of Old Milwaukee for an interactive program!

Explore the Watson’s family history through images and objects that illustrate this vibrant era in the city’s black heritage!

Sully and Susanna Watson took their family from the oppressive conditions of ante-bellum Virginia in 1834 and, after several years in Ohio, arrived in Milwaukee in 1850. Through skilled labor and business entrepreneurship, the couple played a vital role in establishing Milwaukee’s black middle class.
