Two flagpoles with American flags attached to them stand at each side of the pediment, and when viewing straight on, the dome exterior splits the flagpoles down the middle. There are two rows of four windows on each side of the pillars. The equal number of windows, the dome in the center of the flagpoles, and the entrance in the center of the pillars give the statehouse a very geometrical look. Also contributing to the geometrical view is the extremely wide staircase with only two railings that are about as far apart from each other as the door width. So, when looking straight on, the railings lead right into the entrance of the statehouse.
Chicago’s World Fair of 1893 was an incredibly popular and immensely influential social and cultural event. Millions of Americans experienced the Fair during its six months of existence on the shores of Lake Michigan, and millions more have lived with its legacy throughout the twentieth century. The fair was created to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus landing on America and beginning to colonize it. The driving force of this fair was simply to be better than the one France had just put on in Paris. The location chosen for this fair was obviously Chicago, which means that all the pressure to make it amazing was put on them.

It’s why years and even decades after they leave, so many black college alumni still sport college sweatshirts, key chains, buttons, bumper stickers and other HBCU related apparel. They family environment also influences the experiences. There is a special bond between parents and children who share the HBCU experience. It is rooted in a student’s sense of walking the same pathways and sitting in the same lecture halls that their father and even their father’s father may have occupied so many years before. Not to mention, college is where so many couples meet!
