NOW: Milwaukee filmmakers work to tell the story of Father James Groppi’s relentless march for housing equality

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There's no doubt the meaning of home has changed this year because of the pandemic.  For many it's not just four walls and a roof, but rather a place of comfort and safety.  But being able to have and afford a home has long been a storied battle in Milwaukee history, one that is synonymous with the name Father James Groppi.

Now, local filmmakers are hoping to shed some light on the man who became one of the main faces of the open housing marches during the late 1960s.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Pauleen Le sat down with Milwaukee filmmaker Kevin Rutkowski whose next project seeks to tell the untold stories of Milwaukee’s marches for housing freedom.
