This chapter uses two key examples to complete the discussion of the village feature of chocolate cities. First, the life and time of great migrant Arthur Lee Robinson demonstrates the importance of place, rivers, and familial black enclaves throughout the United States. Second, the sketch "Negro Town" from the Key & Peele show illustrates the role of black imagination and density and communal space matter in black citymaking and placemaking.
