Det skal I lave

If you want to experience DC beyond the usual tourist sites, and come away with a deeper understanding of inequality, this tour is for you. This two-hour walking tour takes you to significant sites in historic Anacostia, a rapidly changing African-American community in southeast DC’s Ward 8 to explore the community’s history, and the city’s evolving story of segregation and gentrification. All along the tour, I will offer insights from social science on inequality as well as poignant stories from my own life and work with lower-income families and children in Ward 8. Price per person for 2-hour tour: 1 person: $120 / 2 people: $60 / 3 people: $40 / 4 people: $30 / 5+ people: $24. I'll meet you at the Anacostia Metro Station, and we'll walk from there to a scenic overlook up Morris Road, the historic Frederick Douglass House, the Anacostia Arts Center, the 11th Street Bridge, and the iconic Big Chair.

I'm a former sociology professor turned nonprofit director developing programs in family diplomacy and international mentoring (details at learninglife.info). I've wrestled with issues of inequality, culture and power for 20+ years as an academic, activist and nonprofit director. As an aside, the tour is generally in English, but I'm a French-American dual national with Hispanic origins, and speak French and Spanish at advanced levels, so I am happy to talk some of the time in those languages, and include cross-national cultural differences in our tour conversation.
