DuSable Day 2013!
Join us for DuSable Day, honoring the memory and legacy of the “Father of Chicago,” Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable, Chicago’s first settler, and marking our city’s 176th birthday!
This day long celebration features, multi-cultural dance performances, musical tributes, art workshops
Premiere of the the new Discovering DuSable Digitally website
Another highlight of this family day is touring the DuSable Mobile Museum! Our “museum on wheels” boasts an interactive exhibition that explores the life and times of Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable, an African Haitian, who in 1779 became the first non-native person to establish permanent settlement in Eschikagou (“the place of smelly onions”), which we now call Chicago.
Be a part of the 176th anniversary of the founding of the City of Chicago by paying tribute to its founder, Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable!
This is a FREE event. For more information, call 773-947-0600 ext. 290.
