Dr. Margaret Burroughs

Dr. Margaret Burroughs from St. Rose Parish, Louisiana, graduated from Chicago Teachers' College in 1937, then received an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1948. During the 1940s she taught art in Chicago elementary schools, and published her first children's book, Jasper, the Drummin' Boy (1947). Burroughs was known in the Chicago area as the founder, along with her husband, Charles, of the DuSable Museum of African American History. Opened in the couple's South Side house in 1961 as the Ebony Museum of African American History, the collected artifacts expressed Burroughs' commitment to exploring and sharing the cultural heritage of African Americans.
