A Slow Walk to Greatness: The Harold Washington Story

"Hi, I am Harold Washington and welcome to my office. This is the story of my time as a public servant, representing the good people of Illinois..."
The words, accomplishments, and likeness of Harold Washington, the 42nd Mayor of the City of Chicago, come to life in the new exhibition, A Slow Walk To Greatness: The Harold Washington Story. The exhibition opened officially on Wednesday, March 4, 2009 (the 172nd Birthday of the City of Chicago) at the Museum which is located at 740 East 56th Place (57th Street at South Cottage Grove Avenue) in Chicago's Washington Park.
Red, White, Blue & Black: A History of Blacks in the Armed Services
The call to serve one's country has always been a distinct significance in conferring the highest claim of citizenship and patriotic responsibility. The irony, however, for the more than 14 million black men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States, the right to serve, fight and die for America had been a battle of its own long before the colonies enlisted its first militia. This exhibition features more than 100 artifacts and objects from the DuSable Museum's collection beginning with the Revolutionary War through the Vietnam War.
