Celebrating Black History Month at The DuSable Museum
In celebration of Black History month we took a trip to Chicago’s south side to the DuSable Museum of African American History. Named after Chicago’s first permanent settler, a Haitian man, it provided a concise history of black culture in the United States. For many students this was new information, but the trip gave them the opportunity to share about their own country’s history and social equality leaders. We discussed tolerance, indifference and the different means of protest. The museum ends on a high note recognizing the United States’ first black president Barack Obama.
