Mission and History

We Are On A Funky Mission

The 1970’s was the coolest, funkiest decade EVER! It was a time of pure funk, soul and the ultimate in cool, baby. Stylin’ and profilin’ in funky threads.

The big ‘fro with the pick in it or the tight cornrows. Drivin’ the fly caddy or the deuce-and-a-quarter. Talkin’ jive and stickin’ it to the man by any means necessary. Movin’, groovin’ with serious bad ass ‘tude. 

Superfly. Superbad. Right On! 

1970’s Black culture served as the mothership for all things funky, not only in the United States but all over the world. 

Fast-forward a few decades and 1970’s Black culture is back and hotter than ever. It has been reborn, supplying the essential ingredients for the hip hop revolution, not only in the United States but all over the world.

This is evidenced in several ways, such as the the proliferation of 1970’s funk and r&b samples used in rap music and the popularity of 1970’s style afros, cornrows and throwback fashions. 

Everything that was funky is sho’nuff funky again. Right On! 

The mission of the Museum Of UnCut Funk is to educate all who visit about the original “uncut” funk, it’s architects, disciples, footprint and legacy. We are on a mission to educate the world about 1970’s Black culture and history and unique aspects of Black history.

We celebrate and pay homage to 1970’s Black Culture and the contributions and legacies of Black icons from this era, as well as highlight the indelible impact that this decade has made upon today’s pop culture, not only in the U.S. but around the world. 

Old school Funk class is in session.
