On April 3, 2001, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that "controversy over the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's impending visit to Milwaukee has caused the event to be moved from a north side church to the Hilton Milwaukee City Center...The change was announced at a news conference where several pastors of black churches and a local spokesman for the Nation of Islam stood solidly behind stated efforts by the Korean-born Moon -- founder of the Unification Church -- to rebuild families, restore communities and renew the country through a nationwide interfaith tour of religious leaders."
