Funk University

The DC Funk Parade also identifies and preserves our community’s culture & history through Funk U(university) – where entertainment meets education! With the support of artists, arts educators, activists, government representatives, Shaw neighborhood residents, and cultural institutions, we have established an ecosystem of one-of-a-kind experiences that enlighten thousands.

We’ve partnered with the following organizations to host sessions ranging from music history and dance, to issues centered on the environment and racial justice.
