Ce vei face

We start at the historic Howard Theater, the first theater built to cater to an African American audience. We move west to Florida Avenue, pointing to a number of historical venues on U Street, once known as “Black Broadway,” where African Americans relaxed, socialized, and found respite in a vibrant and exciting community.. We then move up Georgia Avenue to explore the campus of Howard University—one of the premier HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) in the country, and learn about the storied history, people and events that cause it to be referred to as "The Mecca." We end with a journey into the surrounding LeDroit Park neighborhood, where many prominent Black scholars--some whom taught at Howard--lived, and finally end up back at the Howard Theater.

I was born and raised in the DMV area and completed my undergraduate degree in History at another HBCU—Bowie State University, where I also currently teach. I have a Ph.D. in African American History from Ohio State University and love to share the history of my city!

Tony’s experience as an African American history educator really shines on this tour. I was very impressed with his depth of knowledge. I especially appreciated the overview of HBCU history and current status. The tour of homes of prominent African Americans in Ledroit Park was a nice treat as well to see what private life looked like.

This is the best thing that I did during this D.C. trip. He was passionate and considerate throughout the tour. I had not have any background knowledge but he was an expert on his field and his story-telling was very easy enough for me to understand. I was so touched at how much he was thoughtful when I realized he was trying to speak slowly and clearly for me. I am highly recommending his tour to friend in Korea!
