The Black Metropolis Research Consortium: Documenting and Preserving Black History and Culture in Chicago
How can we connect all who seek to document, share, understand, and preserve Black experiences? Making these connections is the mission of the Black Metropolis Research Consortium (BMRC), comprised of universities, libraries, museums, and community and arts-based organizations in Chicagoland. This exhibition explores the BMRC’s founding in 2006 and its efforts to promote the discovery and use of Black historical collections that illustrate the endurance of Black history and culture in Chicago.
