The DuSable Museum is a great cultural experience for anyone who wants to learn more or experience African-American history. I love the store, I always find myself spending so much money especially on the mechanical pencils. I loved those items when I was a kid growing up. The sculptures and the exhibits is probably one of the most enlightening parts.

I went to the Dusable Museum several times for school field trips. It's an interesting place that highlights the achievements of African Americans such as Annie Malone, and shows off a lot of artwork too. This museum is a nice change from the bigger museums in the city. It is usually not as crowded, so you can really take your time at each display. A must see!

However I do know Dr. Margaret Burroughs. She was art teacher at DuSable High School back in the 60's. I then happened to live on the same block where she began collecting various art pieces before the DuSable Museum was established. Everyone should get to see her remarkable collections

Editorial from

Chicago's first non-Native American resident was a black Haitian fur trader named Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable who settled along the banks of the Chicago River in 1779. Even so, many are still unaware of the museum that bears his name.…
