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 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:
1) This experience will make use of photographs, so it may be more comfortable to view on a screen size larger than a phone.
2) I offer an in-person tour of Black Broadway listed under the same tour title.

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 was great, we learned a ton and I walked away with a much richer understanding of Black Broadway then I started with.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience!!!! Tim was thoughtful in his presentation and had so much information! I loved the stories he told! With the colorful and detailed slide show, I learned so much about Black Broadway and the history around it! I am inspired by all the street art and murals! Can't wait to go to Washington and actually tour Black Broadway with Tim!!!!

Tim's virtual tour of Black Broadway was fun, rich, and informative. As a former DC-er, it was fascinating to learn the historical, social, and musical context of an area I was only familiar with on surface level. His inclusion of music samples along the way was an unexpected bonus! Tim is obviously knowledgeable on his subject, and his commentary and insights feel relatable and connected to our current time. I highly recommend this tour and hope to be able to take an in-person tour in the future!

I loved this thoughtful, informative tour. Even though we weren't there in person, it felt like I got a great sense of the area and the pictures were great. Loved how Tim tied the past with the present and ended on some questions to consider. I learned a lot, even having grown up in the area!

Our workplace did this experience with Tim and it was fabulous. An hour of rich history that goes by way too fast! Tim was super responsive to comments and questions, he is truly an expert. We can't wait to book him again!

This was a wonderful virtual experience and I learned a lot. I would definitely do a walking tour if I ever make it to DC when it is safe to travel. Lots of minor but fun tangents that made me interested to learn more, without straying to far, and still staying in time. Tim was wonderful!
