African Americans, across history, have left their mark on the United States and this story of tragedy, endurance, and triumph are echoed in the graves of many individuals who are interred at Congressional Cemetery. From the formerly enslaved, to philosophers, to DC’s Mayor for Life, come and join one of our expert docents for an exploration of African American history in honor of Black History Month.

Please come prepared with comfortable clothing and shoes, as the tours often stray from the main paths.

Reservations are required. $5 donation per person. Tours are rain or shine and visitors may meet docents at the front gate.
