Go-go is a popular music subgenre associated with funk originating in the Washington, D.C., area during the mid-60s to late-70s which remains popular in the Washington metropolitan area as a uniquely regional music style. It became the official music of Washington, D.C. in 2020.
D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser makes the official announcement about go-go music during a community celebration in Southwest Washington. Behind her in the go-go sweatshirt is D.C. Council member Kenyan R. McDuffie (Ward 5), who wrote the bill that calls for the implementation of a program to support, preserve and archive go-go music and its history. (D.C. Mayor Muriel E.

Its characteristic formula combined simple funk grooves with instrumental percussion and often rapping. It is a blend of funk, R&B, and early hip-hop, with a focus on lo-fi percussion instruments and melodic jamming in place of dance tracks, although some sampling is used. As such, it is primarily a dance music with an emphasis on live audience call and response. Go-go rhythms are also incorporated into street percussion. Many District of Columbia soul & funk artists contributed to the characteristic go-go sound, but the main pioneers were The Young Senators, also known as "The Emperors of Go-go", known for their hit tune "Jungle", and Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers, known for "Bustin' Loose", which became a surprise national hit. Later go-go bands include Rare Essence, Trouble Funk, Experience Unlimited, Rare Essence, Hot Cold Sweat, AM/FM, The Junkyard Band, Slug-Go and the Southeast go-go band Aggressive Funk. Bands such as Backyard, TCB, and UCB have gained recognition by being featured in music by rapper, Wale.

Two men arrested in Ahmaud Arbery shooting
Two men arrested in Ahmaud Arbery shooting 02:11
(CNN)The man who recorded the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia is receiving threats
after authorities announced that he's also being investigated following the killing, his attorney said.
The man, William "Roddie" Bryan, shared the 36-second video with the police and was cooperating
with investigators, his attorney Kevin Gough said in a statement Friday.
"It was Mr. Bryan who videotaped the incident in question, disclosed the existence of the videotape,
and invited a responding Glynn County Police Officer to sit with him in his truck where they watched
the video together," Gough said.
The video appears to show the confrontation between Arbery and two men before the shooting that left
Arbery dead in Brunswick, Georgia.
The men -- father and son Gregory McMichael, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34, -- were arrested
Thursday and face charges of murder and aggravated assault in Arbery's killing on February 23,
according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
The footage was a "very important piece of evidence," GBI Director Vic Reynolds said Friday.
Asked whether there will be additional arrests, Reynolds told reporters the investigation is still active.
"We investigate everybody involved in the case, including the individual who shot the video," he said.
The comments by authorities have put Bryan's life in danger, along with his family, friends and
neighbors, his attorney said in a statement. He added that his client has lost his job, despite committing
no crime and cooperating with the investigation.
Two men arrested in Arbery shooting
The McMichaels allegedly chased down Arbery in a pickup truck, believing he was a suspect in a
string of burglaries, according to a police report.
GBI has arrested Gregory McMichael (64) and Travis McMichael (34) for the death of Ahmaud Arbery.
Gregory McMichael told police his son shot Arbery after the latter allegedly attacked him as he stood in
the road with a shotgun, according to the police report.
According to an April 7 letter from Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney George Barnhill, who has
since recused himself from the case, his son and McMichael helped with an earlier prosecution of Arbery
when they both worked for the Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office. Barnhill's letter,
sent to the office of Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, did not specify what the prior prosecution
was for or when it took place.
The Brunswick News has reported Arbery was indicted for allegedly bringing a gun to a 2013 high school
basketball game when he was 19. Family attorney Lee Merritt has acknowledged Arbery's 2018 arrest on
shoplifting charges. But any reference to "alleged conduct from high school or shoplifting is absurd and
has nothing to do with his murder."
Those who knew Arbery said the former high school football player often jogged through the
neighborhoods southwest of Brunswick.
"I just want people to know that he was a very good young man and he loved the people and I just want
people to remember him as a good-hearted young man," his father, Marcus Arbery Sr., said Friday on
what would have been his son's 26th birthday. "To see him just get lynched like that by a racial mob
is devastating to our family."
Three shots heard in grisly video
Gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested two days after Bryan's video surfaced online, sparking calls for
justice in the south Georgia community.
The video was released by a local radio personality on Tuesday. CNN has not verified who recorded the video
— taken by someone in a vehicle that pulls up behind a pickup truck stopped in the road — but it captured events
that match numerous accounts of the shooting.
The footage begins with Arbery jogging down the middle of a street toward a pickup truck stopped in the road.
Gregory McMichael is in the bed of the truck, while his son is standing near the driver's side door.
Arbery approaches and he and Travis McMichael begin tussling.
A shot goes off, and the two disappear off the left side of the screen as Arbery appears to throw a punch.
Gregory McMichael takes out a handgun but doesn't fire.
A second shot is heard as the men are struggling off-camera. As they come back into view, both are still
grappling with the shotgun. Arbery appears to throw a right-handed punch at Travis McMichael's head as
a third gunshot is heard.
Blood appears on Arbery's T-shirt below his left ribcage. He stumbles and falls in the middle of the two-lane road.
The Arbery case initially landed on the desk of Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney Jackie Johnson,
who recused herself because Gregory McMichael had worked for the office. The case then went to Barnhill.
The GBI took over the case Tuesday night at the request of Tom Durden of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit, who is
the third and current prosecutor.
Politicians, activists and celebrities have weighed in on the incident in recent days, including Georgia
Gov. Brian Kemp, who called the footage "absolutely horrific" and said Georgians "deserve answers."

Chinese museum accused of racism over photos pairing Africans with animals

A museum in China has removed an exhibit this week that juxtaposed photographs of animals with portraits of black Africans, sparking complaints of racism.
The exhibit titled This Is Africa at the Hubei Provincial Museum in the city of Wuhan displayed a series of diptychs, each one containing a photo of an African person paired with the face of an animal. In a particularly striking example, a child with his mouth wide open was paired with a gorilla and other works included baboons and cheetahs.

The exhibit was eventually removed after complaints by Africans, including some living in China, the curator said. All the photographs were taken by Yu Huiping, a construction magnate who has travelled to Africa more than 20 times, has previously won awards for his work and is vice-chairman of the Hubei Photographers Association.
Racial sensitivities are often muddled in China, where about 92% of the population belongs to the dominant Han ethnicity and ethnic minorities mostly live in the sporadically populated far west of the country. African countries are increasingly important trading partners, but cultural stereotypes dominate Chinese popular discourse on the continent.Wang Yuejun, one of the exhibit’s curators, said that comparisons to animals were typically seen as a compliment in Chinese culture, pointing to the zodiac signs that identify people with animals according to their birth year.
“The target audience is mainly Chinese,” Wang said in a statement. But the museum understood the images offended “our African friends” and the pictures were removed to show respect for their concerns, Wang added.
The offensive nature was first notices by a Nigerian Instagram user, Edward E Duke. In a post, which was later removed, he asked why the museum “put pictures of a particular race next to wild animals”.
More than 141,000 people visited the show, which opened just before China’s week-long National Day holiday.
China is rife with examples of tone deafness when it comes to race. China’s most popular chat app, WeChat, was forced to apologise this week after its software used the English N-word to translate a Chinese phrase that commonly means “black foreigner”.
Last year a television advert for laundry detergent showed a black man covered in paint going into a washing machine and coming out as a sparkling Asian man. The video went viral around the world and caused outrage for its insensitive messaging.
Over the summer China’s state news agency published a video during a border standoff with India featuring an offensive parody of a Sikh man, complete with a turban and fake beard.
