Virtual Screening: Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC

April 9, 2021 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Bertelsmann Foundation documentary “Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC” focuses on the intersection of go-go and the protests over racial justice that have proliferated across the city for the better part of 2020. The documentary dives into the rich tapestry of Washington’s culture and sound, as well as the forces of economic and cultural gentrification that stand to mute them. The film interweaves scenes of protest as displaced communities rally around the city’s beloved Go-Go music to retake the streets. Director Samuel George will give the introduction and a Q&A after the screening.
