The African-American History Tour is a MUST DO

The tour was somewhat off schedule as it is apparently new. Overall, however, it is well arranged and out tour guide very knowledgeable. The Museum was beyond description. Every American should try to go.

DC from a Different Perspective

I really enjoyed this tour because we learned about D.C. from an African American perspective. This is very similar to a hop-on/hop-off bus tour, we went to multiple sites in which the tour guide would talk about and then give us some time to walk...More

Questions & Answers

I want to study the history about Martin Luther King,Jr. I was a child when it was announced in my classroom that he had passed away. When my little girlfriend and I both started crying, she asked me why we were crying and I told her I think it was because an angel had died. We were 7 years old and we really didn't know a lot about him because they didn't teach anything about Black people and their accomplishments. We both found out after my parents bought me a book about Black people. That book opened our eyes we found out more things like a Black person invented the stop light, a Black person invented the cotton gin, etc. I could go on and on. All we knew about was Washington Carver and the peanut. So, I think it's important for me to know more about this man who started the Civil Rights Movement. I didn't know a lot about my Black Brothers and Sisters. My Great Grandmother, my Grandmother and my Mother grew up in the Southern states. None of my of immediate family came from Africa. So we see ourselves as Black Americans,we were all born in America. So, I want to try and understand why they refer to us as African-Americans, when none of us have ever been in Africa. As a result of all of this, I don't think we should have to pay to see this man who was considered the greatest orator and the person who fought for my people to be able to drink from any water fountain, go to any schools of our choice, have fair wages, instead of pennies or a $ a dollar a week for a garbage man. I could go on and on. All I'm asking is for free tickets to see this great man's accomplishments. We should not have to pay $79 dollars to see greatness. As a matter of fact,I would like several free tickets so I can bring my sister and my son with us.

They do have "free tickets" but it's on a "first come - first served" basis.
