“For too long the African American Museums in Washington, DC have been under served in the tourism market and tourist have been afraid to come to SE DC and that’s about to change” says Don Folden who owns Capital Buddy Tours which specializes in African American History Tours in the nation’s capital.
On November 7, 2018 Folden plans to launch the first DC Black Museum Hop On/Hop Off Shuttle Service starting at the Anacostia Metro Station at 10:00 am. “We’re trying to not only attract tourists East of the River but we want to eliminate all excuses and fears of not being able to reach these Museums for fear of their safety” says Folden.
The shuttle service will run every hour from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm in both directions north and south seven days a week for a one day pass of $30 and a two day pass for $50. Folden says he’s in the process of having his website dcbmshuttle.com<http://dcbmshuttle.com> built and it should be up and running before the end of the October.
Folden’s Company, Capital Buddy Tours, was just featured in the June 10, 2018 issue of The Washington Post Magazine for not being afraid to share DC’s painful and sometimes ugly Black History and he was a onetime Mayoral candidate back in the 90’s.
