Book Discussion: Chocolate City - Race & Democracy, July 21


Join the Ward 8 Dems, DC Vote, and APACC member Anacostia Coordinating Council for a discussion of Chocolate City: A History of Race and Democracy in the Nation's Capital Saturday, July 21. Dr. Derek Musgrove, co-author and associate professor of history at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will be on hand to talk about and sell copies of the book.

Publisher UNC Press describes the book as

the most up-to-date and comprehensive history of race and race-relations in the nation’s capital. Thoroughly researched yet very readable, Chocolate City focuses on African American history, but does not neglect Native American and white components of DC history.
