February 12, 2014

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center

  • Do you know where your chocolate comes from?

“The Dark Side of Chocolate” is a thrilling 2010 documentary film that investigates the exploitation of African children in the cocoa industry years after major chocolate corporations pledged to end it. It exposes the cocoa plantations of the Ivory Coast—a major source of cocoa for companies like Cadbury, Hershey’s, and Nestle—and challenges our social responsibilities as global consumers in the 21st century.

  • Approx. 45 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Martín Macías, UIC student and a leader for the United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS).
