African American Heritage Tour

4 Hours

Price Breakdown:


Allow yourself to plunge into the African American History while exploring the historic district of Washington D.C. Fall back in time while you engage in the history that made DC a capital of activism and culture for the African American movement. Explore monumental sites once visited by Mary McLeod Bethune, Thurgood Marshall and Dr. Carter G Woodson. Sites like U Street, heart of the African American theatre and music movement; Howard Universuty, flagship of African American higher education; and Anacosita, a historic neighborhood that was once home to Fredrick Douglas. Then of course a day of engaging in the African American culture of D.C wouldn’t be complete without going to the Lincoln Memorial to see Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s memorial, which was inspired by his “I have a dream” speech.
