Chocolate City Tour - Phone: 703-296-9867



The Chocolate City Tour is the most sought after tour in Washington, D.C. Our tour reveals more unseen places and more unknown facts than any other tour in the nation's capital. Being quality driven is what has made us number one. We provide this experience year-round. Click our Testimonials page above and see for yourself what people from all over the world have said after taking the Chocolate City Tour of Washington D.C.!

As a Black history historian living in the Washington D.C. area I found that there was no tour in the nation's capital truly dedicated to sharing the city's Black past. During my years of researching the city's history it became apparent that most of our accomplishments, struggles and triumphs remained hidden, obscured or just outright ignored.


As I took various tours, I found that they conveniently disregarded, devalued and even negated our presence. Few tours made an attempt to include our history or even acknowledge our existence. I felt like an invisible man in a city that was built by an invisible people. We were undeniably here from the beginning, but written out of the history books and ignored by the city's tours. How would Black people ever receive information about their own history in the nation's capital if things remained the same?

 


In 2007 I decided to answer my own question by taking my passion to the next level. Furthering my studies I obtained a D.C tour license. With this license I was able to develop a tour company dedicated to reviving the city's Black past which would acknowledge the untold stories and unveil the unseen places. Never has there been such a tour in DC willing to present this history with unabashed boldness and passion.

 


The Chocolate City Tour informs, enlightens, and serves as the historical bank for the millions of Black people living in, around and visiting the nation's capital. As our tour enables you to reclaim your history, you'll find out why they nicknamed the nation's capital the "Chocolate City"!

"If a house is to be set in order, one cannot begin with the present, he must begin with the past" Dr. John Hope Franklin



More than 3000 Blacks from DC alone helped Lincoln win his war. Black soldiers in DC had to train on an island because the sight of formerly
enslaved Blacks with guns made whites nervous and uncomfortable.

Contrary to popular belief the famous "Emancipation" Proclamation of 1863 did not free a single enslaved Black nor did it apply to the District of Columbia.

"Here you have the federal capital of the United States. The nation dedicated to the proposition of human freedom tolerating from the selling of human beings into bondage" -- Dr. James Oliver Horton (Slavery and the Making of America 2005)

Freedmen's Hospital (Washington, DC)

Freedmen's Hospital was established 1862 in Washington, DC by the Medical Division of the Freedmen's Bureau to provide the much needed
medical care to slaves, especially those freed following the aftermath
of the Civil War. The hospital was located on the grounds belonging to
Howard University and was the only Federally-funded health care
facility for Negroes in the nation.


It still exists today as Howard University Hospital. By 1900, there were about forty Negro hospitals.

George Washington was born into a world in which slavery was accepted. He became a slave owner when his father died in 1743. At the age of eleven, he inherited ten slaves and 500 acres of land. When he began farming Mount Vernon eleven years later, at the age of 22, he had a work force of about 36 slaves. With his marriage to Martha Custis in 1759, 20 of her slaves came to Mount Vernon. After their marriage, Washington purchased even more slaves. The slave population also increased because the slaves were marrying and raising their own families. By 1799, when George Washington died, there were 316 slaves living on the estate.


Slaves played an integral role in Mount Vernon's history. Although little written documentation exists from the slaves themselves, much is known about their lives through primary documents left by Washington and visitors to Mount Vernon. The skilled and manual labor needed to run Mount Vernon was largely provided by slaves. Many of the working slaves were trained in crafts such as milling, coopering, black smithing, carpentry,and shoemaking. The others worked as house servants, boatmen, coachmen or field hands. Some female slaves were also taught skills, particularly spinning, weaving and sewing, while others worked as house servants or in the laundry, the dairy, or the kitchen. Many female slaves also worked in the fields. Almost three-quarters of the 184 working slaves at Mount Vernon worked in the fields, and of those, about 60% were women.

 

 


 

The work-day at Mount Vernon was from sunrise to sunset, with 2 hours off for meals. Sunday was a holiday. Slaves also received 3-4 days off at Christmas, and the Monday after Easter and Pentecost as holidays. If a slave was required to work a Sunday during harvest, Washington would allow them a day off later, and sometimes compensated them with pay. Read more...

"If you can control a man's thinking, you don't have to worry about his actions. If you can determine what a man thinks you do not have worry

inferior, you don't have to compel him to seek an inferior status"...
"He will go to the back door on his own and if there is no back door,
the very nature of the man will demand that you build one." Dr. Carter

George,

 

 

Thank you for your impressive E-mail message and the enclosed photographs. It was great meeting you and hearing you. Though you had a comforting job and an abundance of security as a conductor with The New Jersey Transit, it's obvious your heart lies within the existing realm of the music we lovingly call jazz. Few of us will ever get rich by engaging in this pursuit, but our hearts will be overrun with joy and satisfaction for having done it. Time cannot be so cruel as to keep us apart indefinitely. So, onward and upward as we chase our dreams with a votive and determined effort, in spite of all else, with an inelluctable spirit of success concerning our proleptic tomorrows. We have no choice but to HIT IT over and over again at every opportunity as faithful visionaries letting no one or anything get in our way.

 

 

Noblesse Oblige,

 

Benny

I think the idea is now for blacks to write about the history of our music. It's time for that, because whites have been doing it all the time.

First Wooden Clock by: BENJAMIN BANNEKER 

Using as a model a pocket watch he had borrowed from a merchant or traveler, Banneker carved wooden replicas of each piece and used the parts to make a clock that struck hourly. He completed the clock in 1753, at the age of 21. Due to its precision (it struck every hour, on the hour, and continued to do so nearly forty years) the clock brought fame to young Banneker. Thus he began a watch and clock repair business. The clock continued to work until his death. Read more....

Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
