Before I begin, I must admit, this post does not do American history, Black history, Chicago history or the museum itself justice. My hope is that by highlighting historical facts and perspectives that I did not learn explicitly in school, through socialization, or in the media, will inspire you to ask questions, dig deeper, and maybe even visit the DuSable Museum the next time you are in Chicago!
