This week’s photograph was taken on Northwest U Street, in Washington, DC (of course). You can see the beautiful mural on 15th and U Street, “Touch the Sky,” by Aniekan Udofia (@Aniekanreloaded)

It can easily said that U Street has hosted more civil rights history per millimeter than almost any other place in the United States.

For a few examples check out Black Broadway on U , and several posts on this blog covering the history of the civil rights, LGB, and Transgender rights movement events that happened here.

Here’s an additional shot from the same vantage point. Enjoy the photos.
