Chocolate City: A History of Race and Democracy in the Nations Capital
From: 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM
In their book, Chocolate City, professors Chris Myers Asch and George Derek Musgrove tell the tumultuous, four-century story of race and democracy in our nations capital, which has often served as a national battleground for contentious issues, including slavery, segregation, civil rights, and the drug war. But, the city is also rich in history of local activism as the citizens struggle to make their voices heard in an undemocratic city where residents lack full political rights.
