The Museum of UnCut Funk is all about celebrating the power of THE FUNK and of 1970’s Black Culture. As we continue to provide information on one of the most powerful and productive decades in Black history, we also want to pay homage those those who passed this year who were major players during this period and beyond.
As the year 2010 closes and southern states in the U.S, continue to rewrite our history, The Museum of UnCut Funk proudly acknowledges the civil and human rights, public service, music and art achievements that these great Black Americans gave to the world.
All of your hard work and service was not done in vain…Rest in Peace.
