Washington, DC was the first majority-black city in America—which garnered it the nickname “Chocolate City.” The nickname stuck, and was used by DC residents from all walks of life for many years until the city's racial demographics changed to the point that now the nickname has fallen out of common use.

Filmmaker, Mignotae Kebede's critically acclaimed documentary, What Happened 2 Chocolate City examines how gentrification is changing Black communities as told through the lenses of three generations of Washingtonians. A panel discussion with the filmmaker and guests follows the screening.
