Join the Oberlin Club of Washington, D,C. and the Bertelsmann Foundation for an online screening of the new documentary film "Go-Go City: Displacement & Protest in Washington, DC."
The film, by Oberlin College Alum Samuel George '07 dives into the rich cultural tapestry and history of Washington, DC, as well as the forces of economic and cultural gentrification that stand to mute it. The film interweaves scenes of protest as displaced communities rally around the city’s beloved Go-Go music to retake the streets.
Following the online screening, the event will continue with a conversation moderated by Nana Efua Mumford '08 of the Washington Post which will feature the filmmaker and additional commentators. This panel conversation will also feature Human Rights Advocate-Organizer Jonathan Hutto, Protest Leader Terrence Odom, and the film's Director, Samuel George.
