Description

This 7 site walking tour highlights some of the buildings in the Shaw/Cardozo neighborhood of Washington, DC that have been significant to the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, and African-American history.

The tour focuses primarily on structures on or nearby the Howard University campus, but it ends at the Old Kappa House on the corner of 17th and S Streets, NW. The Kappa House Restoration Foundation hopes that the tour will generate interest among the Kappa alums that regularly visit the District, and that it will also serve as a useful lens through which anyone can view African-American history in DC.
