The Skychi Travel Guide Bronzeville Art District Trolley Tour 2015 Photo Album




"I really enjoy experiencing the art, history and music of Bronzeville."
It is fun to ride the Bronzeville Trolley to hear about the historical places of the Sutherland Hotel and Lounge, South Side Community Art Center, and Harold Washington Cultural Center. I was honored to meet Rhymefest who co-wrote the Oscar nominated song "Glory" from the movie "Selma". Rhymefest kicked off the 8th Annual Bronzeville Art District Trolley Tour by joining us on the trolley and doing photo ops at Faie Afrikan Art Gallery." by +Janice Temple
