Event details

Summer vacationers traverse the globe in search of new sights and experiences, but we’ve got them all right here! It’s stay-cation time – join us for a summer series of virtual art lectures and guided tours led by professional art historians and archeologists.

Discover the musical heritage of Washington, DC’s U Street – also known as Black Broadway – from jazz to hip hop to punk and go-go. Through a vast collection of intimate, moving, neighborhood photographs, we will “walk” the streets and back alleys and learn how murals, theatres, music venues and memorials embrace the history of this amazing neighborhood. Also enjoy a complementary and diverse playlist that will match up with the murals and venues.

Please note: this interactive and hands-on event is hosted online, which means you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room, patio or kitchen table! An access link will be provided prior to the start of the event.
