Shaw's History

HISTORIC ROOTS

Shaw’s roots are closely intertwined with DC’s African American history. The neighborhood (which originally went by the names “Uptown” and “Midcity”) was originally home to freed slaves who built up a vibrant community in the years after the Civil War.

Over time, the area gained a reputation as one of the vibrant centers of African-American culture in the city. Many of the historic buildings still around—such as Howard Theatre, Lincoln Theatre, and Dunbar Theatre—had their origins as places where African-American performers could innovate with blues, jazz, and other musical forms.

Shaw is also home to Howard University, the historic African-American college. Famous figures with connections to the neighborhood include Duke Ellington and Langston Hughes.

As with other nearby neighborhoods, Shaw was hit hard by the 1968 riots that swept the area in the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

GROWTH AND ENERGY

In recent decades, Shaw has been the site of exciting new developments that have injected a renewed sense of attention on the neighborhood—while at the same time respecting the African-American heritage that’s so central to its story.

Massive mixed-use development projects like CityMarket at O and Atlantic Plumbing marry mid-rise urban living with retail fronts that include everything from high-end stores like Warby Parker to hip new restaurants like Convivial.

Recent years have also seen the restoration and preservation of entertainment venues like The Howard Theatre, opening up the beloved venue to a new generation of young professionals and family audiences.

In addition to growth and energy, Shaw’s long-standing location makes it the perfect home for urban living. Not only are its thoroughfares and side streets delightful to stroll, it’s easy to visit surrounding neighborhoods—or to head right downtown.
