Museum Faces: Margaret Burroughs

Margaret Burroughs, a poet, visual artist, educator and arts organizer, grew up in Chicago and made a lasting contribution to that city’s arts and humanities community.  Her reach, however, has extended far beyond Chicago’s borders. 

One of the founding members of the DuSable Museum of African-American History, Burroughs is ranked among the distinctive visionaries of her generation.  Her literary and artistic works, as well as her involvement in progressive politics, has marked her as both a creative and social innovator.  Ms. Burroughs died on November 21, 2010, leaving the Museum World a richly layered presentation of the history and culture of Africans and African Americans.
