|Event Details:||Chocolate City tells the tumultuous, four-century story of race and democracy in our nation’s capital, of which Alexandria was once a part. Tracing D.C.’s massive transformations from a sparsely inhabited plantation society into a diverse metropolis, from a center of the slave trade to the nation’s first black-majority city, from “Chocolate City” to “Latte City” this account is peppered with unforgettable characters, a history of deep racial division but also one of hope, resilience, and interracial cooperation. George Derek Musgrove co-authored this book with Chris Myers Asch.? Dr. Musgrove is an associate professor of history at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.|
