Currently located inside Stagg School of Excellence,

The Black Chicago Museum Inc. shares the history of Black people in Chicago, IL during the antebellum period via art exhibits.   By the end of 2019, two additional exhibits will be complete: Blacks on the Rise 1866 - 1900 and The Great Migration 1915. This will complete the start up phase here at the Black Chicago Museum. 

In the second phase of start up, it is our hope and plan to expand and acquire a physical space we can call our own. Inside this space we will continue to  share the history of Black people in Chicago, IL starting from the 18th century to the present time.  Guest will visit the museum for self guided tours and/or schedule guided group tours.  The team at the museum will host events centered on historical events to continue the work of educating, inspiring and motivating individuals to make this world a better place.
