A Chocolate City Is No Dream
The concluding chapter revisits a discussion about how racism and other forms of inequality that take place on H Street, and in D.C. generally, are not overt, but subtle, where euphemisms like “creativity,” “diversity,” and “cultural vibrancy” are used to disinvite. The chapter discusses the spatial and economic impact of gentrification-induced displacement on the relocation of Black Washingtonians to its neighboring suburban regions. The chapter concludes with a comparative look at Oakland, CA as another post-chocolate city, and the potential for Black geographic theory to provide a rubric for envisioning an alternative future.
