Historical Bronzeville Tour in Chicago
Great Migration Statue
On the Historical Bronzeville Tour, learn about one of America's most significant African-American urban communities of the 20th Century.
If time permits, you'll also enjoy a short visit to either the African Market Place or Little Black Pearl Art Workshop.
Bronzeville is a neighborhood located in the Douglas and Grand Boulevard community areas on the South Side of city of Chicago around the Illinois Institute of Technology and Illinois College of Optometry.
In the early 20th century, Bronzeville was known as the "Black Metropolis," one of the nation's most significant landmarks of African-American urban history. Between 1910 and 1920, during the peak of the "Great Migration," the population of the area increased dramatically when thousands of African-Americans fled the oppression of the south and emigrated to Chicago in search of industrial jobs.
Many famous people were associated with the development of the area, including: Andrew "Rube" Foster, founder of the Negro National Baseball League; Ida B. Wells, a civil rights activist, journalist and organizer of the NAACP; Bessie Coleman, the first African-American woman pilot; Gwendolyn Brooks, famous author and first African-American recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, actress Marla Gibbs, the famous singers Sam Cooke and Lou Rawls, and Louis Armstrong, the legendary trumpet player and bandleader who performed at many of the area's night clubs.
This tour includes pickup from downtown Chicago hotels. Child rate applies to children ages 5-14. Children 4 and under are free. Please order online or call 888-881-3284 to order or for more information.
