What you'll do

This is an on-line experience. Internet access is required.

Discover the musical heritage of Washington, DC's U Street --aka Black Broadway-- from jazz to hip hop to punk to go go. Through my vast collection of neighborhood photographs, we will "walk" the streets & back alleys and learn how murals, theatres, music venues, and memorials embrace the history of this amazing neighborhood. I've created a complementary and diverse playlist you can listen that will match up with the murals and venues.

Highly reviewed and great for groups & team building! Happy to answer any questions before booking.
Other things to note
This experience will make use of photographs, so it may be more comfortable to view on a screen size larger than a phone.

I'm a former civics teacher & museum educator and I love teaching about the built environment; especially when I'm able to use art and music to tell stories. I'm licensed as a tour guide and welcome everyone to come as you are and learn about our city!

I've been researching this Experience for four years and the companion walking tour version is currently one of the highest rated in the Washington, DC region. This is the online version of the tour!

Tim's virtual walking tour was a superb, engaging, and personal history of Black Washington DC, music, musicals, civil rights, infrastructure, murals and art, and even insurance (I promise the latter is way more interesting than it sounds). One of the best Airbnb experiences I've been on - highly recommended!

From the start of the event you can feel that Tim is a veteran — a really experienced tour guide versed in the history of this area of Washington D.C. From the 1960s to today, Tim has a firm hold on the evolution of the economic and cultural significance of this historic space and does a great job of welcoming you to walk the streets in this digital format.

Tim is a great story teller! We learned many things about Black Broadway and the only thing we wanted to do after Tim’s experience is go visit Washington DC when things get back to normal!
