Grooves for the People

The 2018 AHA annual meeting will take place this January in our global hometown of Washington, DC. To persuade you to register, we’ll present a series of stories on our favorite DC-related things. Up first: the infectious funk of go-go, a uniquely DC musical style that’s been a longtime backdrop to African American life in the “Chocolate City.” The mural pictured depicts DC’s “Godfather of Go-Go,” Chuck Brown.
