A Chocolate Lens


How do you take a picture and tell a whole story. A Chocolate Lens chronicles Steven Cummings’s photographic journey through a disappearing Black Washington. His approach was simple: use the camera lens to find the power amidst the storm. His images are a love letter to Black people across America.

This short film is part of the Heroes You Should Know shorts package.
