The History of the African American Community in Chicago

For more than a century and a half, African Americans have formed a core community in the heart of Chicago. The DuSable Museum was established to preserve and interpret the history experiences and achievements of this community in Chicago, in order to promote an understanding and aspire appreciation of the contributions of the people who helped build and maintain the city.

The museum maintains galleries that provide established collections of materials documenting African and African American culture. In addition, there is a program of special exhibitions and programs to illustrate the history, culture and art of Americans of African descent.
