A little over a year ago I gave a talk at Busboys and Poets in Washington, DC.. The crowd was amazing — a diverse group of D.C. residents, old and new, all with an interest in understanding their roles in the ever-changing city. D.C. used to be known as Chocolate City — it had a dense and thriving African American community full of innovators, progressives and trendsetters — but the gentrification wave has washed in and drowned the black population over the past 10 years, unfairly displacing many of those residents farther away from the capital.
