I Like My Chocolate Dark: Reexamining Washington DC as the Chocolate City, is a multidisciplinary art exhibition highlighting the changing cultural environment of Washington, DC through the eyes of local artists and residents.
In the past decade DC has dramatically changed due to population growth, gentrification and government policy. It is no longer the same Chocolate City the funk band Parliament referred to in the 1970s, but it still remains distinctively DC. The work included in the exhibit explored the vibrant and ever changing communities of the nation’s capital in a way that speaks to individual experiences as well as collective memory. Includes original work by Charles Jean-Pierre, Cita Sadeli “Chelove”, Jared Soares, Adrienne Gaither, David Ibata and Katrina X.
