Visiting our local Black History Museum in Chicago. The DuSable is full of rich historical artifacts and futuristic art.
What really made the greatest impact on me was the slave field cradle. The work never stopped and babies never stopped coming. The slaves had no time to rest and went back to work right after giving birth picture 11.
Zi'Joy thrifted denim dress with pink kisses. Thrifted Leopard print pants rolled at the calf. Pink moccasins Wal-Mart. Her signature thrifted red hat and custom made flower headband.
MaMa Donna upcycled custom made dress by Creative Flow designer Oshun Bey. Earring hand crafted. Thrifted heaswrap, flower pin, denim leggings. Shoes Wal-Mart. Surprisingly comfortable given we walked a museum.
I try to tie in our our looks with accessories. Today it was our flowers.
Have a great day and let us know What you think.
History on Jean Point Dusable. He was the first permanent settler in Chicago was a black man named Jean Baptiste Point DuSable. He was born on the island of Haiti around 1745 to a French mariner and a mother who was a slave of African descent.
DuSable was educated in France and then, in the early 1770s, sailed to New Orleans. From there, he made his way up the Mississippi River to Peoria, Illinois where he married a Potawatomi woman named Catherine in a tribal ceremony.
