Description

Delve into the African American heritage of the United States and its capital city on this local-led tour of D.C. Visit landmarks like Frederick Douglass' house and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and get tickets at the end of your tour to visit the powerful new National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Meet your guide and group and climb on board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach to set off through D.C. Drive to the home of Frederick Douglass, which he named Cedar Hill, and spend some time visiting the grounds and visitor centre. From there, make your way back into the city, exploring historic districts around Capitol Hill as you seek out landmarks like the statues of Mary McLeod Bethune and Abe Lincoln in Lincoln Park.

Pass by the Howard Theatre, one of the first theatres in the country to be built specifically for African American audiences to attend, and see Dunbar High School, one of the first black high schools in the US. Ride down U Street—the old “Black Broadway”—and pass the campus of Howard University. At the White House, hear the stories of the African American men and women who built this presidential estate and laboured within its walls, and then make a stop at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the African American Civil War Memorial.

Your tour concludes at the Museum of African American History and Culture, where you're given tickets to go inside and spend as much time as you'd like exploring exhibits on community, the visual and performing arts, religion, civil rights, slavery, and segregation.
