Chicago the center of America’s heartland, from its founding in the late 1700’s by Jean Baptiste Point Du Sable, a French educated Black man, to the modern day Gypsies who live on Maxwell Street. It’s a city steeped in Black History. This is the story of a city where a unique African-American history has grown, a center for the emergence of jazz, blues, dance, art, and the Du Sable Museum of African-American History. Thanks to Dr. Margaret Burroughs founder, teacher, pioneer.
