Chance the Rapper has been named as a new board member at the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago, reports Pitchfork.

Chance’s father, Ken Bennett, has also been added to the board, the museum announced. They are among five new Board of Trustee members.

The DuSable was founded in 1961, and its goal is “to promote understanding and inspire appreciation of the achievements, contributions, and experiences of African Americans.”

Later this month, Chance will give a speech in Washington, D.C. at the NAACP’s “People’s Inauguration” rally.

From the DuSable Museum website:

The DuSable Museum of African American History located in the historic Hyde Park area of Chicago at 740 East 56th Place (57th Street and South Cottage Grove Avenue) in Washington Park unites art, history and culture.

Founded in 1961 by teacher and art historian Dr. Margaret Burroughs and other leading Chicago citizens, the DuSable Museum is one of the few independent institutions of its kind in the United States. The Museum was developed to preserve and interpret experiences and achievements of people of African descent.
