Section 4: Chocolate Today and Tomorrow

This section of the exhibit explores everyday connections to Chocolate. Experts and historians aren’t the only ones with stories to tell, so the UIC Latino Cultural Center hosted numerous programs, and invited students, faculty, and community members to contribute to this portion of the exhibit. Chocolate has been absorbed into everyday popular culture, which is all around us. However, as we explore the joys and fun of chocolate, we should also recognize the ways we all connect to the international chocolate market. Are there things we wish were better? Are there ways everyday people can help? Submit your choco-stories at our home page, and help continue the conversation.
