Master band leader and funk impresario, George Clinton, describes his own emergence as a funk music icon, businessman and cultural visionary in a candid conversation with NPR host, Michel Martin.

Due to its popularity, we have changed the program’s location to a larger venue. The program will now take place at the University of the District of Columbia, 4200 Connecticut Ave, NW, Washington, DC, Auditorium, building Number 46.

Doors will open at 5:30PM. Priority will be given to those who have reserved space from 5:30 -- 6:15 PM. Saving seats will not be permitted because this event is heavily subscribed.

All seats will be released for general seating at 6:15PM --- 45 minutes prior to the start of the program.

After 6:15PM we cannot guarantee your seat in the auditorium regardless of your reservation status.

All photography and videography are prohibited in the auditorium during the discussion between Mr. Clinton and Ms. Martin.
