the legend of disco dan

The Legend of Cool ‘Disco’ Dan is a documentary about the story of black Washington DC told from the perspective of Cool “Disco” Dan starting with his birth during the civil rights era and follows his life parallel with the rise of Go-Go music through the 1980s.

Using graffiti as an outlet to escape the social problems of DC, Cool “Disco” Dan ends up as a cult character of DC and his name becomes a symbol of survival during DC’s most trying years.

Loaded with a lot of great interviews the documentary has an interesting perspective on the cultural movement that took place in Washington, DC during the 1980s.
