Tim Wright

The Art & Soul of Black Broadway

Discover the musical heritage of Washington, DC’s U Street –also known as 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.

We’ll explore the origins of Black Broadway, what happened during that time period, and discuss it’s legacy and the debate over if it’s still a part of DC.

My Background

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 particular experience for four years and the companion walking tour version is currently one of the highest rated in the Washington, DC region.
