Description

This tour will explore the rich and often untold history of African Americans in the nation’s capital. This tour highlights significant areas starting with a drive to Cedar Hill in the historic community of Anacostia -home of the famous freed slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass, a renowned civil right activist, lawyer, and writer during his life. After taking a glimpse into the past at the Home of Frederick Douglas, proceed to Howard University - one of the oldest black universities in the United States. On the way to Howard University, you will drive by Lincoln Park to visit the statue of educator, activist, and founder of the National Council of Negro Women - Mary McLeod Bethune. Following your visit to the beautiful Howard University campus, drive through Le Driot Park, Shaw Neighborhood, and Historic “U” Street. Home to the largest urban African-American community in the United States in the early 1900’s, it created its own “Black Broadway” - a home to entertainment legends from the past and present. The next stop on the tour is the African American Civil War Memorial and Museum to discover how the course of the Civil War was impacted by these disenfranchised soldiers. You will then take a journey into downtown DC to the sites of the national headquarters of the National Council of Negro Women, Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue, the White house and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. As you head downtown, you will enter the Logan Circle historic district to see the historic Metropolitan AME Church and the Mary McLeod Bethune Council house. The tour ends in front of the African American History and Culture Museum where you will learn about Civil Rights heroes and icons who changed the history of this Nation.
