A mural painted near the corner of North 14th Street and West Vliet Street in Milwaukee depicts Monique Liston (right), a local activist and chief strategist at Ubuntu Research and Evaluation, a Black women-led consulting firm for education, policy and advocacy, on July 2, 2020. Liston underscores that societies haven’t always relied on police, and that many of America’s police systems were created to control Black people and protect the interests of the wealthy.
