OnMilwaukee is proud to highlight Black History Month in Milwaukee and beyond. Our goal is to highlight even more Black-owned businesses and stories. Be sure to visit our first spotlight pick: Tropic MKE, owned by Hyacinth Nembhardt. Hyacinth's Jamaican roots were what inspired Tropic, bringing island vibes in both cocktails and cooking. Check out their sister bar, Concoctions, on Brady! Stop in for a visit.
Every year for Black History Month, Judge Derek Mosley posts daily tributes on Facebook that provide information about remarkable African-Americans and aspects of Black history that were excluded from the mainstream. OnMilwaukee will share these tributes as well. Read all of the tributes from this year and from years past here.
