Built for all fitness levels, the self paced running tour will explore the history of  Howard University’s role in educating notable African American professionals who went on to become leading figures in U Street’s thriving entertainment scene. As participants dive into the legacy built by these DC neighborhoods and businesses, they will encounter musical inspiration by Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and DC’s very own jazz legend Duke Ellington.
