Take a step back in time as we engage and enchant you, while exploring the history to why African Americans have made DC a capital of activism and culture. You will see monumental sites in the lives of remarkable people such as Mary McLeod Bethune, Thurgood Marshall, Dr. Carter G Woodson and many more! Encounter U Street, the heart of African American theatre and music; Howard University, the flagship of African American higher education; and Anacostia, a historic suburb once home to Fredrick Douglas. Of course we will be seeing Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s memorial, which was inspired by his “I have a Dream Speech” at the Lincoln memorial. This tour will be filled with energy and education as we travel through time visiting the foundation and groundwork for African American history in Washington DC!
