活動內容

[Food is not included with the price. For that please contact the host for a special tour]. This tour visits some of the greatest heritage sites in Washington, DC and in African American history. This is a walking tour, within the historic Shaw community in northwest Washington, DC.

The community is named after Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. He was known for his leadership in the US Civil War. Many tourists have been unaware of these sites until the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in 2016. Shaw is also the community of the famous Howard University named after General Olive Otis Howard who was a Civil War general.

The Shaw community represents full American citizenship for people of African descent. The community emerged after the Civil War as people of African descent helped save the Union, and defended the Emancipation Proclamation to free themselves and their families. Shaw declined with the 'uprising' of 1968 after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Since 2008 it has seen new construction and its memory is being revived.

Soul food is the ethnic cultural food for African Americans. As your guide I do not prepare the food. All of the sites are within walking distance. We will end the tour at a great soul food restaurant. When you purchase your ticket then you will receive instructions on where to start

The Soul Food Tour gave us a unique view of the Shaw District and its place in American History. My suggestion would be to take the historical tour, before having the meal. You will definitely work up an appetite. Johnny and Milt work well together and complement each other’s skills. The tour offers a great learning opportunity.

We learned far more and felt more kinship with the history and culture of the area through Johnny's eyes. He introduced us to people as we walked which felt special and inclusive. He went out of his way, to listen deeply to our questions and to anwer in like manner. He is extremely personable and dedicated. the food that we ate was delicious and had its own history. We thought this tour was great way for u to begin our visit to Washington, DC. I encourage all visitors to include this in their visit.

Please attend this tour. The history behind this community is rich and is a little nice intro to get a better understanding of the different types of cultures in the DC area. If you want to eat, please come hungry.

Starting with the positive - Johnny's personality is very welcoming and open. The conversations that he facilitated over the tastings were engaging and thought-provoking. The food at the locations we visited was very good and I even got to try vegan barbecue. One note, I would not recommend this tour for anyone familiar with African-American history, as the information presented is pretty basic. Our tour took longer than indicated, as wait times at 2 of the 3 restaurants were lengthy. This is a solid tour for international visitors or those wanting to experience soul food for the first time.

This was a great tour! Johnny provided great context and food recommendations for the tour. Although we probably could’ve gone to the restaurants on our own, we wouldn’t have understood the historical and cultural significance of the restaurants and the greater Shaw community. You can order as much or as little as you want, but definitely come hungry. You’ll want to eat everything! Johnny was also very flexible with us in terms of time. We were a larger group that hadn’t seen each other in a while, so we spend considerable time catching up with each other. Johnny didn’t make us feel rushed at all, and even provided us with the opportunity to chat with a prominent Shaw community member. Would highly recommend this tour!
