On this stroll through Washington Park and Bronzeville, guests will trace the rich cultural legacy of jazz, blues, and swing by visiting the long-gone sites where crowds gathered to mix, mingle, and be entertained. Tour led by Lee Bey, Senior Lecturer at the School of the Art Institute and author of Southern Exposure: The Overlooked Architecture of Chicago’s South Side.
