Report says more black infants in Milwaukee die than white | The Janesville Gazette | Janesville, Wisconsin, USA, 18 Dec 2002 [cached]
"We can and must do better by our children in Milwaukee," said Joyce Mallory, executive director of Start Smart Stay Smart Milwaukee.
The report also found that fewer pregnant black women in Milwaukee sought prenatal care during their first trimester and that those who did had 10 or fewer prenatal visits.
"Women who receive early and consistent prenatal care are more likely to give birth to a healthy child of normal weight, as early and regular prenatal care encourages women to engage in healthy behaviors," the report said.

Joyce Mallory, director of Start Smart Milwaukee, a non-profit group that monitors trends affecting young children, says that in the United States in general, and among African-Americans in particular, "somewhere along the line, we kind of gave tacit approval that it's OK to have babies out of wedlock, and we celebrate that and say it's OK.I don't think it's OK."
She suggests that not only were the numbers smaller 25 years ago, the overall atmosphere for single parents was more stable in Milwaukee's black neighborhoods - less desperation, crime and drugs, more solid employment.
The general lack of resources and the abundance of pressure and stress make things all the harder for single parents now, says Mallory, a former member of the Milwaukee School Board.
To their credit, both Erika Cole and Diamond Green are among those who take advantage of services available in the community.
Cole has been a regular recently in a parenting group one evening a week run by Catholic Social Services and the Parenting Network at the PACT (Parents and Communities Together) Family Resource Center at S. 5th St. and W. Lincoln Ave.She says talking with other parents about issues each of them faces and getting tips on good parenting from the group's facilitators have been helpful to her.
As for Green, while she was in the hospital after the birth of her baby, she was visited by a worker with a program called Supporting Today's Parents that aims to make sure every first-time parent gets at least some information on what services are available in the community.

We wanted to make sure ourchildren weren't getting left behind in connection to the largersociety," said Joyce Mallory, a former school board member.
But no matter how painful, it's critical that race be talked aboutrather than ignored, said Mallory, the former school board memberwho is now the director of Start Smart, an organization that focuseson promoting awareness around early childhood issues.
"If adults don't talk about race in Milwaukee, how can we createa community where everyone is valued?"asked Mallory.
"To think that doing well on a test is all the skills young peopleare going to need is foolhardy," she said."If you look at oneof the primary skills employers want people to have, it's theability to get along with people from different backgrounds anddifferent orientations."
Mallory said that the school board she served on did not wantmulticultural and anti-racist education to come at the expenseof the rest of the curriculum.But rather it was to be woven into bolster the rigor of what was being taught.
"I didn't see it as fluff then, and I don't see it as fluff now,"said Mallory.
