From DCPL:

“Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015, 7 p.m.
901 G Street, NW

In honor of Black History Month, the first District of Change of 2015 will explore: Is D.C. Still Chocolate City?

The District of Columbia has always been rich in black culture and history. How will the more recent years of urban development and gentrification alter the racial, cultural, and political map of our city?

Join us for a discussion moderated by D.C. author and scholar Natalie Hopkinson, in conversation with Dan Silverman, creator of PoPville.com, and Latoya Peterson, owner/editor of Racialicious.com.

District of Change is an ongoing series at the DC Public Library examining the transformation of Washington, D.C. It is produced by former Slate editor David Plotz and published author Hanna Rosin in conjunction with the DC Public Library Foundation. Each event will address a topic pertaining to D.C. culture and feature a panel of guests who will lead the discussion.”
