Walk in Chicago # 12, history and culture in Bronzeville
This self-guided walk explores “the black metropolis” of Chicago as this neighborhood was once called. It more or less follows its main artery with its galleries, 19th century mansions, monuments, murals or houses evocative of its musical and/or activist past.
There aren't many places to visit that are open on a regular basis, so it's mostly a walk of about 3 miles in an area far from the beaten track. It is also the possibility of memorable encounters with warmly welcoming locals.
NB: if you have not already done so on another site, you can read the philosophy and general content of this itinerary by opening the “About the walks” link above or below.
