Chocolate City is a town and central-northern suburb of Monrovia, Liberia. To the northeast is Samie Town. It contains the Elizabeth Blunt School and Francis Freeman Elementary School.[1][2]

During the Second Liberian Civil War in 1999-2003, the city was war torn,[3] and "rape, murder and plunder" happened every night in Chocolate City.[4] Hundreds of thousands of refugees hid in churches, schools and houses and many thousands died.[4]
