Chocolate In The City

In high school, they started calling themselves, “Chocolate Girls.”  Now these 3 single, “Chocolate Women” are blazing a path through their beloved, native Brooklyn. 

 LASHELL (LASHES) JOHNSON – Model tall, African American woman; butterscotch complexion; wears a short haircut with blonde highlights.  She has long legs that drive men crazy.  Loves her make-up, especially false eyelashes, (hence her nickname Lashes).   She has a 2-year old daughter, Baby Imani; her rainbow baby.  She  is so stinking cute, people stop Lashell to tell her how cute she is. Lashell is casually dating Michael Gibson and James Blakely; after meeting both of them at the same event.  After so many of her looks are copied and friends tell her she could be a stylist, for fun she starts her blog, “Killer Lashes” but stumbles into being a fashion and lifestyle influencer.  

 ZARILYN (ZARI) HUDSON – Average height, African American woman, milk chocolate complexion with black shoulder length hair; interned in high school at the NYC Transit Authority.  When she got out of high school, she already had a full-time job there.  She is average height; Lashes and BeBe lovingly call her, “Ms. Perfect Size,” because unlike them, she never needs to get her clothes hemmed or lengthened.  Now she’s in the thick of things and is harboring a major secret from her two best friends.  This is a problem she created for herself and she is suffering,  because it’s her secret and she can’t share it or the guilt with her friends.   

 BEBE LOPEZ – Petite, Mexican American woman; olive complexion, burgundy curly afro, usually swept to one side. The funny thing about it is, as tiny as BeBe is, she can out eat both of her friends.  She attends Hunter College and is working on getting her master’s degree, so she can become a school administrator.   Eventually she, meets and starts dating fellow student Thad Gardner.  She loves a good-looking man, but he also has to be a foodie because she loves to eat, and her man has to enjoy that with her.  So tofu, vegan, vegetarian, only salad eating, green juice drinking men, need not apply.
