The last of three chapters on the power of chocolate cities, this chapter centers the lives, activism, and pioneering efforts of Mos Def (a.k.a. Yasiin Bey) and W. E. B. Du Bois. Exploring their lives, legal setbacks, and push against global imperialism and racial oppression, the authors highlight their sophisticated and politically informed racial geography of the United States. Detailing the movement of black people throughout the domestic diaspora and into and throughout Africa, this chapter illustrates the how place, race, peace politics, and power collide in the lives of black people here, there, and everywhere around the globe.

Keywords:   W. E. B. Du Bois, Mos Def, Yasiin Bey, Ghana, South Africa, World Passport, Peace Information Center, Dean Acheson, Garry Davis, Stockholm Appeal, chocolate cities
