Road Scholar: 5 Black Tours Worth the Ride

June 6, 2011  |  

You want to go on vacation. But if the very thought of an airport gives you a headache, a place where even a free trip can cost you and a decade of heightened security isn’t enough lead time for the thick-sculled – really, ditch the water, take off your shoes and remove the laptop from the bag!  —  you’re the perfect candidate for a road trip.  And while you’re out there you might as well learn something along the way, right?   Surely. Don’t get scared, we’re not talking about a bunch of museums.  We’ve rounded up five unique tours that can’t help but educate and entertain.

 

Hip Hop History Tour

Hush Tours takes you from the haunts of old school hip hop to the stomping grounds of modern day musicians.  Led by legendary figures like Kurtis Blow and DJ Red Alert the excursions offer first person accounts of the forces that gave birth to and continue to shape the tradition.  Video locations, establishments popularized by songs and homes where artists grew up are all par for the course.
