SAIC and the DuSable Museum of African American History teamed up to bring together 11 Chicago Public Schools students from across the city to create murals focused on Chicago's African American history reports Chicago's WGN-TV. For ten weeks, high school students, nominated by their art teachers, worked together to create the murals, which will become part of the DuSable Museum’s permanent collection, will be on display outside the Roundhouse on what were once barn doors. Speaking of the student's working together, instructor Haman Cross III says, "because we share Chicago, they've been able to come together and connect in a way that you can see in their artwork."
