Celebrate the cultural significance of African Americans to DC, the nation and beyond.
The connection between African Americans and DC has always existed – from Benjamin Banneker, the son of a freed enslaved man, placing the District’s boundary stones to the "Godfather of Go-Go" Chuck Brown inventing a new form of funk music. Recount the days of “Black Broadway” on a U Street walking tour, pay homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by visiting his memorial and attending the March on Washington's 60th edition, reflect on the challenges and triumphs of African Americans at the National Mall’s newest Smithsonian museum and experience the city’s cultural diversity no matter where you are.
