On Saturday, June 6, 2019, The Milwaukee Urban League hosted its 34th Annual Black & White Ball at The Wisconsin Center, 400 W. Wisconsin Ave. This year’s theme, “100 Years Empowering Communities, Changing Lives,” marked the 100th anniversary of the MUL. Started in 1985, the Black & White Ball’s goal is to promote diversity and celebrate the “coming together” of the community to enact change. The event also serves as the MUL’s key fundraiser, so that they may continue with their many vital community based programs and initiatives.

Klappa; Community volunteer and Black and White Ball cochair Jackie Herd-Barber; and MUL President and CEO Dr. Eve M. Hall.
