Chance the Rapper Joins DuSable Museum Board

  /  01.06.2017

Chance the Rapper has “big plans” for 2017, starting with his work as a board member at Chicago’s DuSable Museum of African American History.

On Friday (Jan. 6), the 23-year-old announced his new position. “I’m honored to announce I have been made a board member of Chicago’s historic DuSable Museum of African American History,” he tweeted. “I got big plans.”

Keeping it all in the family, Chano’s father will be joining the board. He previously worked with President Barack Obama and Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Dr. Eric Whitaker, a former University of Chicago Medical Center official and a reported friend of the Obamas, is also joining the board.

According to the Chicago Tribune, these new placements are meant to offer a “shakeup in oversight” at the South Side museum, which is near where President Obama’s presidential library is slated to be built. These are also the first major public moves made by new DuSable President and CEO Perri Irmer.

The museum states its mission is “to promote understanding and inspire appreciation of the achievements, contributions, and experiences of African Americans through exhibits, programs, and activities that illustrate African and African American history, culture and art.”

Outside of his museum plans, Lil Chano is working on his debut album, as well as his acting debut in Slice, hitting theaters later this year.
