Event description

Description

Silver Spring developed as a “sundown suburb” in the early 20th century. African Americans were welcome to work in the stores and homes here but they were unable to shop, eat, play, and live in the community. This two-hour tour explores Silver Spring’s historic landscape as it transitioned from Jim Crow segregation into the thriving multicultural community it’s become.

The tour begins at the garage and walk about two miles through downtown Silver Spring stopping at various sites associated African American and civil rights history.

Meet on Cameron outside the garage and across from the Tastee Diner.
