Archives Visit: The DuSable Museum of African American History Archives

CAA invites you to join your fellow archivists, librarians, and records managers for a visit to The DuSable Museum of African American History archives.

The Museum is dedicated to the collection, documentation, preservation and study of the history and culture of Africans and African Americans. The DuSable Museum is proud of its diverse holdings that number more than 15,000 pieces and include paintings, sculpture, print works and historical memorabilia. Skyla Hearn, Archivist and Special Collections Librarian, will share highlights from the archives, which will open again to researchers in Spring 2017. Attendees are welcome to go into the museum following the archives visit. 

WHEN: Tuesday, May 16th, 1-2pm

There is street parking around the Museum as well as a paid lot across the street that is a part of the University of Chicago hospital. 

Due to limited space, this is a members-only event.  In the event that registration does not fill, we will open this event to the general public on May 9th. Joining CAA is quick and easy!
