YOU DID IT!!! HERE’S WHAT’S NEXT
Apr 12, 2019 —
You and more than 70,000 people raised your voices here. The DC music community took to the streets. Even the mayor and city council members joined the #DontMuteDC movement. Because of you, go-go music is back to playing at the corner of Georgia and Florida Avenue NW!
NEXT STEPS. As gentrification continues at full speed, we need to stay vigilant to empower black businesses and youth and protect black culture. Here’s what you can do:
DONATE to Central Communications/Metro PCS owner Donald Campbell’s effort to convert the 30,000 live go-go recordings he owns into an online streaming service. Click here https://www.gofundme.com/f/FREE-GOGO
GET ADDED to Ronald Moten’s action email list. He can keep you informed on how to support other black businesses currently under attack in D.C., as well as the ongoing effort to create a Go-Go Museum. His website is www.wearegogomusic.com and you can email him at RonaldMoten @ icloud.com
LEARN more about gentrification research at Howard University’s Dept. of Communication, Culture and Media Studies underway since 2014. Help us document D.C. black cultural businesses and create forums for new and old residents to come together to find common ground. Please email Natalie.Hopkinson @ howard.edu
Thank you again and again,
Ronald and Natalie
