LSC Screening of "What Happened 2 Chocolate City" this Friday

via LSC

The Love + Solidarity Collective is hosting a screening of "What Happened 2 Chocolate City" a feature length documentary exploring the roots of Washington, DC, a capital of Black art, music & culture, and how they came to be endangered.

From our friends at the Love + Solidarity Collective:

***Required watching for DC transplants***
What Happened 2 Chocolate City is a feature length documentary, exploring the rise and decline of one of our nation’s most prominent Black communities through the narrative of three individuals. John, Mike, and Zarina, each represent a generational experience many Black Washingtonians faced over the past century. 
By visually examining the repercussions of urban development and revitalization in the district, WH2CC will uncover the roots of Washington, DC, a district home to GoGo music, Mumbo Sauce, and legions of black artists and academics, and how they’ve come to be endangered. 
Join us for a free screening and post-film discussion. 
Thank you to filmmaker Mignotae Kebede for this beautiful piece.
