William "Ju Ju" House (EU) and Geronimo (Trouble Funk) did a go go workshop at Anacostia High School (DCPS) for a music class on Thursday, February 7.  The students were so excited that now they want to create a go-go band and incorporate go-go into their drum line. Even the principal joined in.

This was part of a week-long series of activities at Anacostia High School for DC Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action. On Wednesday, for example, they hosted KanKouran West African Dance Co.  

The Teach the Beat visit to Anacostia High School was made possible by a donation to Teaching for Change from the Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation.

 
 

We will add more information to this post soon. In the meantime, enjoy the photos and video clips.
