This was the first independent museum in the country dedicated to African American art, history and culture. The collection features African American artworks and photography, permanent exhibits that illustrate African Americans’ experiences from slavery through the Civil Rights movement, and rotating exhibits that cover topics such as Chicago blues music or the Black Panther movement.

Housed in a 1910 building, the museum takes its name from Chicago’s first permanent settler, Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable, a French Canadian of Haitian descent.
