Did you know on the Third Thursday of each month, Jewish Museum Milwaukee is open late? That’s right – we stay open until 7:00 pm so you have extra time to explore our exhibits! Stick around because immediately following ‘Thirdsday’ we are presenting “The Lavender Scare: The Cold War Persecution of Gays and Lesbians in the Federal Government” with author and scholar David Johnson.

Thursday January 17th, 2019 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Lavender Scare: The Cold War Persecution of Gays and Lesbians in the Federal Government
Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI

Historian David K. Johnson will relate the frightening, untold story of the "Lavender Scare," and how during the Cold War, homosexuals were considered as dangerous a threat to national security as Communists.
