"Thank you for your interest and active participation in all things Black Age. As you know, the Black Age is not about race but about place. A place and space where indie-active creative minds can produce, collect, grow and share new exciting and passionate approaches to the visual narratives and products we crave. Our growing network of four annual conventions in Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta & Detroit owes its success to you. I want to tell you how important you are. I love you as much as I love all things Black Age."

Last year, for October's Chicago Artists' Month 2010, during "BLACK AGE XIII" weekend Art Stars N. Steven Harris, Turtel Onli, Arie Monroe, Eric Battle & Afua Richardson went on a stroll to check out an amazing mural that was a tribute to the founder of the city of Chicago, Jean Pointe DuSable, along with visits to the Oriental Museum and the DuSable Museum. In Chicago our Black Age convention typically features a weekend of related events.

This mural was created by Statik Barnes, Max Sinsang & Troy Patterson per the Chicago Public Art Group.

BTW: The DuSable's Trading Post gift shop features a rack of Black Age books all year!!!
