In memory of music icon Chuck Brown, the DC Public Library is creating an archive honoring the artist and Go-Go.
But we cannot do it alone. We need your help -- and your favorite Go-Go memorabilia.
To create the Chuck Brown/Go-Go music archive, we are looking for materials relating to Chuck Brown and the music he loved, including:
- CDs and audio recordings of Chuck Brown and other Go-Go musicians;
- flyers and posters;
- concert-ticket stubs;
- videos or DVDs; and
- letters that describe attending a Chuck Brown/Go-Go concert.
Items donated to the archive will be reviewed by library staff. Selected items will be organized and preserved.
By sharing your Go-Go and Chuck Brown memories, students, researchers and historians will be able to access the rich history of the archive free of charge.
