Get to Know Chicago on One of Our Marvelous Tours

Bronzeville Update

Bronzeville Neighborhood Tour

TikTok’s Chicago Historian sensation Shermann “Dilla” Thomas is leading CiderCon® attendees on a tour of Bronzeville-- a historic neighborhood beloved as a center for African-American life and culture in Chicago. “Historically known as the city’s ‘Black Metropolis’ Bronzeville has a strong sense of pride in its influential history and cultural scene…..Throughout the 1950s, the neighborhood was known for its bustling commercial areas, popular music clubs, and community of intellectuals and social activists. Today, Bronzeville is embracing its legacy as a mecca for civil rights, jazz, blues, and gospel music. You’ll also find an array of coffee shops, bistros, galleries, libraries, monuments, and restaurants, alongside spectacular Victorian-era architecture and 19th-century mansions” (Choose Chicago). Lunch is on your own, but after touring Bronzeville’s historical architecture, you have the option to return to the hotel or consider joining Malaika and Sean Tyson of CiderSoms for lunch in one of South Side’s delicious eating establishments. They’re locals so they will know the best spots! $50 pp.
