Margaret Taylor Burroughs played a key role in forging the Chicago Black Renaissance in the 1940s, first by opening the South Side Community Arts Center to serve black writers, artists and activists in Bronzeville and later by starting a museum in her home that would go on to become the DuSable Museum of African American History. http://bit.ly/2FlcM9f #WomensHistoryMonth
