DC Bands Together to Protect Its Culture

This month, I was reminded of how precious and endangered DC’s culture is. Shaw’s Metro PCS store, on 7th Street NW, has been playing Go-go music from their outdoor speakers for almost 25 years.

I grew up listening to Go-go music, and now I am raising a sixth-generation family of Washingtonians.

Finally, the Washington City Paper penned an article highlighting my work with returning citizens.
