The U Street Corridor, or Black Broadway as it was called, was the hub of cultural, intellectual andcommercial life for many African-Americans for the first half of the 20th century.

Hundreds of black-owned businesses flourished on U Street at a time when Jim Crow Laws plagued other areas in the United States and the District of Columbia.

LeDroit Park is a Historic District that was once a gated and whites-only community. It became a major cultural focal point for African-Americans in the early 1900s due in large part to the work of student activists from nearby Howard University.

One of LeDroit Park’s most famous residents was Anna J. Cooper, “the mother of Black Feminism”. Anna J. Cooper also served as a teacher and principal at DC’s M Street High School.
