For decades, the District has been a beacon for Black culture and community. Now, however, a wave of economic and cultural gentrification threatens to erase this history. Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC, a documentary film by Samuel George of the Bertelsmann Foundation, dives into a rich tapestry of D.C. culture and the forces behind the gentrification that stand to mute it. The film interweaves scenes of protest as displaced communities take to the streets to rally around the city’s beloved Go-Go music. The screening is hosted by National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s Just Economy Club in partnership with the Bertelsmann Foundation.
