Many Chicagoans celebrated African-American history today.

Monday is the birthday of Martin Luther King Junior, the second inauguration of the first African-American president and the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.

So it was a significant and symbolic day for the hundreds who gathered at the DuSable Museum Monday.  Cynthia Dawson brought her two sons and two of their friends to this Museum of African-American history.

Looking around at all the accomplishments of those who paved the way before her, she told her children they can dream to be whoever and whatever they want.  And for the four female students from Indiana University, Monday was a day to be educated on how others, especially those in big cities like Chicago, celebrate this historic day.
