construction dcWashington, D.C. was long known as "Chocolate City." Actually, it's one of many urban centers that adopted that nickname, where African American residents developed a unique sense of place and ownership.
For decades, that story has been changing. Watch "Chocolate City" from film-makers Sam Wild and Ellie Walton below. It will be instructive viewing for anyone seeking to understand gentrification and displacement in other cities, including throughout the Bay Area. 
 Then tune in to Connect the Bay: Gentrification on KRCB TV 22 and KPJK Sunday, June 30 at 5:00 pm.
