Invisible Lines

In 2018, we created a web series premised on listening. We brought together 10 Milwaukeeans to discuss their firsthand experiences with prejudice and racism. The video series was eventually turned into a feature-length documentary that was screened at the Milwaukee Film Festival.

In the clip below, brothers Darren and Vedale discuss their interactions with police and security guards as biracial residents in Milwaukee. Their story offers a personal perspective of how prejudice affects them on a daily basis.

Watch the original web episode below and see how your experience compares.

If you’re interested in hosting a screening of Invisible Lines, visit InvisibleLinesMKE.com to learn more, or reach out directly to Radio Milwaukee’s Community Engagement Manager Maddy Riordan at maddy@radiomilwaukee.org.
