    Not really. The big black migration into Chicago started in the 1920s.

    Just because this one black guy founded it, I wouldn't say it's historically black. Take New York for instance. Once it was officially Dutch territory, named New Amsterdam then. Now there you can say that the city is historically Dutch. Because it was RULED by the Dutch. Chicago Was founded, but it's not like Jean Baptiste Point Du Sable was the emperor of black people, so to say it's historically black is historically inaccurate.
