Murals of DC Tour
Take a Two hour walking tour of murals and historic sites in the Greater U Street Historic District. Once called a "city within a city", at the turn of the century this neighborhood became a hub of commercial, intellectual and cultural life for African Americans. We will visit sites where important black leaders in the civil rights movement, education, law and music made history. And, adding to the caveats of history we will examine the murals that our artist's painted to remind us of our heritage. You'll learn about the artists who created the murals, 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.
