Add to Calendar 2022-04-23 15:00:00 2022-04-23 18:00:00 America/New_York Go-Go City A screening and discussion of the documentary Go-Go City: Displacement and Protest in Washington, DC. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

A screening and discussion of the documentary Go-Go City: Displacement and Protest in Washington, DC.

The sound of the city comes to the DC Public Library!
 
Join the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Library for a screening of the documentary film “Go-Go City: Displacement and Protest in Washington” Stay tuned afterwards for a live Go-Go performance by The Rocksteady Project.
 
“Go-Go City” combines interviews with musical legends, community organizers, politicians, protesters and academics to showcase the history of the city, which has come under the threat of rapid gentrification. The film offers a vivid portrait of the long-term citizens of Washington, DC rallying around the unique music to make their voices heard.
 
After the screening, enjoy a live performance from The Rocksteady Project. Conga player Ricky “Rocksteady” Brown has been a driving force behind the Go-Go beat for four decades. Now leading a band featuring a number younger musicians, it is a powerful mixture of the vanguard and the future of Go-Go.
 
We look forward to seeing you for this afternoon celebrating Washington, DC’s culture and history.

Presented in collaboration with the American University Metropolitan Policy Center, Empower DC, and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition.
