See this 05-28-2020 message from Bloomingdale's Natalie Hopkinson:

Perhaps of interest to Bloomingdale?

Back in the 1970s, President Jimmy Carter declared June African American Music Appreciation month. I want to share a couple of events happening in DC. 

1) Wednesday, Jun 3, I will be in conversation with the author Ta-Nehisi Coates as part of the virtual launch of the Go-Go Museum and Cafe in Anacostia.  RSVP at this link: 
2) Sunday, Jun 21, the cable channel TV One will do a national release of its documentary on go-go, "The Beat Don't Stop".  TV One (and Radio One) Founder and owner Cathy Hughes has some poignant comments in the trailer about DC's history of slavery and how it is tied to the music.
