Summer Film Series: What Happened 2 Chocolate City?

June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for the first film in our summer Social Documentary & Discussion Series. DC: Tales of Two Cities. “What Happened 2 Chocolate City” explores DC’s 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.

After the documentary, there will be a panel discussion with the filmmaker, Mignotae Kebede; director of photography, Mansa Johnson; and John Russell, one of the individuals featured in the film.

Free Admission, with donations gratefully accepted for Empower DC, which works to enhance, improve and promote the self-advocacy of low and moderate income DC residents in order to bring about sustained improvements in their quality of life.
