Film Screening: What Happened to Chocolate City

What Happened 2 Chocolate City will take people on an explorative journey to understanding the roots of our Nation’s Capitol: the legacy of Black Washingtonians, and the driving forces behind its decline. This film will explore the districts’ hyper-gentrification through a retrospective lens, highlighting the effects of the 1968 riots, War on Drugs and Mass Incarceration, and the current economic barriers affecting Black Washingtonians.

A brief Q&A session with director, Mignotae Kebede, to follow after the film.

This screening is a part of a collective art exhibition in the gallery February 15th - 24th.
