“Funk Parade brought together Washingtonians of every imaginable sort to have a good time together. Black, white, young, old, men and women all reached out to one another, discovering that in fact we share being Washingtonians and we share a joy in being with one another.”

— Blair Ruble, Historian and author of U Street: A Biography
