will center on Southeastern Wisconsin targeting Milwaukee, which is now racially significant city because it is one of the most segregated cities in the nation. Yet it has a vast and growing mixed race population. According to The 2020 U.S. Census Milwaukee mixed race population (two or more races) is at 4.0%. Wisconsin’s ranking of cities in America finds Milwaukee is near the top in diversity, ranking as the sixth most diverse large city, and the 15th most diverse of 607 cities in America ranked in the report. It also beat out every other city in Wisconsin for diversity.
The United States’ fastest growing demographic is multiracial individuals; defined as the offspring of two or more commonly considered “racial groups,” such as African-American, Caucasian-American, etc. (while, some anthropologists and social scientists do not subscribe to the idea of “races” of humanity). Nevertheless, census takers and demographers project that one in five Americans will be of mixed “racial” heritage by 2050. Wisconsin has transformed in a way that all America is transforming. And from those findings and observations, ACF will investigate and summarize the impact it may have on multiracial American's and how race and diversity is changing in context to our future lives as Americans. That essence of being White-American, African-American, Asian -American, Native American and the acceptance and non-acceptance of diversity, multiracial and multiculturalism by our nation’s people is changing.
Executive Producer/Writer Mark J. Carreño and Ray Telles Producer/Director join together once again to tackle poignant issues such as prevailing social attitudes toward multiracial American’s and the challenges for this evolving group in the coming decades.
