DuSable Museum of African-American History


Located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood, this museum of African-American culture, art, and history is named after Jean Baptiste Point DuSable, a Haitian of African and French descent who, in 1779, established the settlement that would come to be known as Chicago. Its exhibits celebrate the achievements of people of African descent, including such Chicago notables as Mayor Harold Washington. The museum’s educational and cultural programming further highlights the vibrant African-American culture and traditions of the city.
