It's Nearly Time! Don't miss your chance to help conserve our History.

Follow us on:
Dear Maryellen,
As you may know, our newest permanent exhibition, Freedom, Resistance, and the Journey Toward Equality, opens to the public on Friday August 28, 2015. It will more than 200 objects from the Museums collection that help tell the unique stories of African American History from the horrors of the Middle Passage and Enslavement to the triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement and the election of our nations first African American President.
Several of the artifacts slated for display, like this Black Panthers Headquarters Door and Black Panthers Free Breakfast sign are still in need of conservation before being added to this new installation. These artifacts are some of the most iconic of the Black Panther Party in Chicago and the role of the Black Power Movement to advance the cause of Black self-determination, justice and equality.
Without conservation, these pieces of living history are at-risk of continued deterioration, relegated to the Museums dark storage rooms, and lost forever to the public eye.
This is where you come inby donating to the Museums Conservation Fund you are helping to preserve the past for future generations. Objects just like these arent just important to this exhibition but are constant reminders of the truths of our historical record.
Dont let these amazing objects linger in the dark. By giving to the Conservation Fund you will help to open the door and shed a little light on these pieces of living history. The DuSable Museum of African American History is a 501(c)(3) organization and your gift is 100% tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your support and Long Live History!
