Illinois – The Obama Presidential Center is expected to open in 2021 in historic Jackson Park on the South Side of Chicago, not far from where Barack and Michelle Obama lived and where the first lady grew up. It will include three buildings—a museum, forum and library—that will form a campus surrounding a public plaza for performances, markets and fairs. Exhibits will tell the Obamas’ story within the context of civil rights and African-American, Chicago and U.S. history. obama.org/the-center/
