Black Georgetown Remembered featuring Historian C.R. Gibbs
In addition to the colonial architecture and tree-lined cobblestone lanes, there is another side to the history of a community older than the nation's capital itself. This is the seldom told story of African Americans in Georgetown. Join historian C.R. Gibbs in a stunning two-hour tour of a neighborhood that several thousand black people once called home. He will guide you along nearly forgotten byways to churches, schools, homes,neighborhoods, and cemeteries. You will also learn the true story of their near demise and how a few proud families are still holding on, determined to cling to their legacies. The tour itself is a hop-on-off style and may require some walking at times
A Continental Breakfast and lunch will be served.
