Being Black in Madison pt1: Talk with Cynthia Walton Jackson

A banner in front of UW Madison's Bascom Hall reads Black Lives Matter

Madison is not known for its racial equity despite the progressive reputation. We sat down with MMSD teacher Cynthia Walton Jackson and her 13 year old student Taliyah to talk about their experiences. Cynthia is originally from Alabama, although she has lived here most of her life. Taliyah is originally from Chicago.

Our first talk was with Cynthia Walton.
