Come visit our current exhibit, The Reason Why the Colored American is Not in the World’s Columbian Exposition, inspired by the same-titled pamphlet, co-authored by journalist and civil rights activist Ida B. Wells. The exhibit draws on the 120th Anniversary of Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair and explores how many African-Americans felt about their exclusion from the fair’s planning processes. Explore some of the lesser-known contributions of Black Chicagoans during this period and issues concerning ethnic representation within the Fair’s exhibit.
