Fair housing advocate in Milwaukee sets off to find "Dora" in decades old photograph

NOW: Fair housing advocate in Milwaukee sets off to find “Dora“ in decades old photograph

(MILWAUKEE) - On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day we highlight the search for the owner of an old photograph rich in symbolism.  The picture was found in a Milwaukee neighborhood, perhaps fittingly by a fair housing advocate who's working to eliminate racial disparities in a city recently identified by the Brookings Institution as having the highest black-white segregation in the country. 

Pauleen Le takes us on Kori Schneider-Peragine’s quest to find Dora.

Beautiful. This made me tear up. That's my grandmother. The writing on the back seems to be my grandfather's. He may have dropped it. I believe she was in her 20s in that picture. She unfortunately died this past August at the age of 92 but she lived a long and joyful life. Always with the same smile. My grandfather has already called the station. I would not mind if they contact me either but I'm in dallas.
Correction. She past in october.
