Huntington National Bank's IL/WI Regional African American BRG Hosts Event at DuSable Museum of African American History in Honor of Black History Month
Huntington National Bank
Black / African American
"The IL/WI Regional African American Business Resource Group and Inclusion Council for Huntington National Bank Co-Hosted an event today at the DuSable Museum of African American History focusing on collaborative efforts within our affinity groups, and education around Black History.
The DuSable is the nations oldest independent African American Museum and celebrates its 61 years in the Chicago community. In 1961, with a few dedicated colleagues and a dream, the artist/educator/writer/activist Margaret Taylor Burroughs established our nation’s first independent museum celebrating Black culture. The Ebony Museum of Negro History and Art was inaugurated that very year in the Burroughs’ home on Chicago’s iconic South Side.
Today, The DuSable Museum of African American History is a Chicago community institution and the first non-profit Museum dedicated to the collection, documentation, preservation, study and the dissemination of the history and culture of Africans and African Americans.
We’d like to thank the entire team at Dusable for the rich history lesson and a special thanks to our tour guide Perry, who made it especially educational for our youth that came out to attend this event!"
