A provocative book by noted scholars Chris Myers Asch and George Derek Musgrove. Chocolate City: A History of Race and Democracy in the Nation’s Capital has been called “an ambitious, kaleidoscopic history…essential American history, deeply researched and written with verve and passion” by Kirkus Review.
It tells the tumultuous, four-century story of race and democracy in our nation’s capital, which has often served as a national battleground for contentious issues.
