Chocolate Cities

BYU Law School, Room 306, Provo, Utah

Lecture by Dr. Marcus Hunter about his book "Chocolate Cities." "Chocolate Cities offers a refreshing and persuasive rendering of the United States--a 'Black map' that more accurately reflects the lived experiences and the future of Black lief in America. Drawing on film, fiction, music, and oral history, Marcus Anthony Hunter and Zandria F. Robinson trace the Black American experience of race, place, and liberation, mapping it from Emancipation to now. As the United States moves toward majority minority society, Chocolate Cities provides a provocative, broad, and necessary assessment of how racial and ethnic minorities make and change American's social, economic, and political landscape." There were about 65 people in attendance.
