Jazzy Nights in Shaw: A Stroll Through 1920s Washington

July 11, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In the 1920s, U Street was a hub of African American music, culture, activism, nightlife, and—as in any thriving center of city life during Prohibition—bootlegging. During this Shaw tour, historian Garrett Peck offers a comprehensive look at the link between Black Broadway’s jazz scene and DC’s 16-year dry spell, complete with a pint at a local brewery. $45.
