"Murals of Our City" Tour

Saturday, May 4, 2019, 8:00 PM


Murals of Our City Walking Tour

A cultural historian and certified tour guide leads this two-hour walking tour of the murals and historic sites in the Greater U Street Historic District. Once called a “city within a city,” this neighborhood became a hub of commercial, intellectual and cultural life for African Americans at the turn of the 20th century. You’ll visit sites where important black leaders in the civil-rights movement, education, law and music made history, and you’ll see the murals that artists painted in remembrance of that heritage. You’ll also learn about those artists, the stories they tell about the neighborhood and the DC organizations who work to facilitate the creation and placement of these beautiful works of art.

Cost: $15
