Currently located inside Stagg School of Excellence and Carter School of Excellence,

The Black Chicago Museum Inc. shares the history of African American people in Chicago, IL during the Antebellum Period, Reconstruction Period and The Great Migration Period via art exhibits.    

 It is our hope and plan to expand to more schools and acquire a physical space. When we expand, we will continue to  share the history of  African American 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 affairs, to continue the work of educating, inspiring and motivating individuals to make this world a better place.
