In 1961, a diverse group of Chicago artists and educators, including Margaret and Charles Burroughs, set out to correct the apparent institutionalized omission of black history and culture in the education establishment by founding a museum committed to that purpose. The museum is the oldest of its type in the country and is the only major independent institution in Chicago established to preserve and interpret the historical experiences and achievements of African Americans.
