About this submission

Mother-daughter team Danell Cross and Melody McCurtis are determined to prevent what America witnessed during Wisconsin's April 7th’s primary election from happening again. It is estimated that the primary, held despite Covid fears, disenfranchised almost 16 percent of Black voters in Milwaukee, the largest city in Wisconsin. Metcalfe Park: Black Vote Rising follows Danell and her daughter, Melody, as they organize their Black community of Metcalfe Park to not just prepare for reduced polling stations and see through disinformation campaigns, but to find a way to vote amid the challenges of job loss, furloughs, school closure and illness.
