The African-American Cultural Center invites to come and visit our current exhibit, The Reason Why the Colored American is Not in the World’s Columbian Exposition.  Come and explore how the Center utilizes the occasion of the 120th anniversary of Chicago’s World’s Fair to focus on the diverse perspectives, desires and experiences of a number of African-American stakeholders who recognized the potential of the Fair as an opportunity to present “Colored Americans” to the world. This project identifies the particular frustrations of a number of outspoken authors and activists who felt that they should have been included in the Fair’s planning process; it also calls attention to a variety of Fair events and activities that did include “Colored Americans.”
