History in the streets
This is not your average history class…
In a lecture-style setting, immerse yourself in the rich art, culture, and Black history of D.C.
Our tour guide will take you on a virtual field trip exploring the streets and back alleys of U Street or Pennsylvania Ave. Through a vast collection of neighborhood snapshots, your team will learn about the various events, landmarks, and sights that encompass the history of Washington, D.C.’s African American community.
Participants are encouraged to interact and ask questions throughout. Great for celebrating Black History Month or DEI initiatives throughout the year!
🗓️ Availability: May be limited during Black History Month. For the fastest booking process, we recommend submitting one request with multiple dates & times. Don’t see the date you’re looking for? Black History & Culture experiences are perfect for celebrating all year round!

We had an amazing experience and opportunity to bring a local historian author to educate us on the history of the city in which we work. This virtual event tour allowed for such enhanced connectivity.
The Black Broadway Tour was SO GREAT! I learned more than I had expected about the history of D.C., and the presentation had a wonderful variety of photos and info about U-Street.
It was really nice to do an activity that was different from trivia and learn something new. Our team enjoyed the presentation and our host! We look forward to trying out other Confetti experiences!
Our host was AMAZING! She kept us all very engaged and made it an educational but fun experience.
