The Bronzeville Cultural and Entertainment District is a City of Milwaukee redevelopment initiative inspired by Milwaukee’s original Bronzeville District of the early to mid 1900’s. The primary African-American economic and social hub of its time, Bronzeville brought all ethnicities together to celebrate African-American culture - highlighting jazz, blues and the arts. Those living in Bronzeville recall a commercial corridor with nightclubs such as Metropole Club and the Moon Glow featuring performances by such pioneers as Billie Holliday, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, and Nat “King” Cole, to mention a few. This 21st Century Bronzeville strives to revitalize an area of Milwaukee where African-American culture has been a mainstay. Garfield to Center, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive to 7th Street – the District is slated to offer unique opportunities for locals and tourists to enjoy the best Milwaukee has to offer in entertainment, arts and culture.
