Chocolate Cities: The Black Map of American Life
From Central District Seattle to Holly Springs to Harlem, Black people have built a dynamic network of cities where black culture is maintained, created, and defended. But imagine—what if our current maps of black life are wrong? Chocolate Cities offers a refreshingly persuasive cartography of the United States—a “Black Map” that more accurately reflects the lived experiences and the future of Black life in America. The book draws on film, fiction, music, and oral history to map the Black American experience of race, place, and liberation from slavery to freedom. And as the United States moves toward a majority minority society, Chocolate Cities provides a provocative, broad, and necessary assessment of how racial and ethnic minorities make and change America’s social, economic, and political landscape.
