dr. mary burroughs

In this week’s edition of Rap Sessions, NewsOne writer Bakari Kitwana speaks with Haki Madhubuti, Publisher of Third World Press, about the life and impact of Dr. Margaret Burroughs, the pioneering Chicago artist and co-founder of The DuSable Museum of African American History who died last month at the age of 95. Madhubuti, who volunteered at The DuSable Museum back in the early 1960s, talks about Burroughs’ impact on the political and cultural life of Chicago and the nation for over half a century.

About a month before her death, she was honored by the Art Institute of Chicago with its Legends and Legacy Award. At the gathering, Madhubuti publicly read a poem that he wrote for Dr. Burroughs entitled “Master of Colors and Canvas.” Here Madhubuti remembers Dr. Burroughs as a one-of-a-kind educator, artist, institution builder and community leader. “When Margaret Burroughs spoke everyone listened,” Madhubuti recalls. “She was never for the elite. She was always on the frontline trying to do that which is best, good, correct, and just for the great majority of people in this country and the world.”

Haki Madhubuti is the Ida B. Wells-Barnett University Professor at DePaul University and the founder and publisher of Third World Press. He is the author of 28 books including the most recent Liberation Narratives: New and Collected Poems 1966-2009 for which he received the 2010 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for poetry.

Bakari Kitwana is CEO of Rap Sessions and author of the forthcoming Hip-Hop Activism in the Obama Era.
