Dark Toolbar with Light App Theme

I know this question has been asked before, and it worked for me before but after updating to App Compat revision 23, the Toolbar is now having a black text color (I want it white) and I didn't change a thing.

Toolbar.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:local="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:id="@+id/toolbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:minHeight="?attr/actionBarSize"
android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"
local:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark.ActionBar"
local:popupTheme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Light"
>

</android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar>


styles.xml

<style name="MyMaterialTheme.Base" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
<item name="android:windowNoTitle">true</item>
<item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
<item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
<item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
<item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
<item name="@attr/spinner_style">@style/spinner_style</item>
</style>


Setting toolbar to activity:

Toolbar Toolbar = (Toolbar) AppCompatActivity.findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
AppCompatActivity.setSupportActionBar(Toolbar);
ActionBar actionBar = ((AppCompatActivity)activity).getSupportActionBar();
actionBar.setTitle(title);

Answer

Change

local:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark.ActionBar"

to

android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark.ActionBar"
