Event description
Guided tour of BROOKLYN: ONCE A CITY WITHIN A CITY and a discussion of Charlotte's black history and free civic resources for community.

About this Event

History and civic education go hand in hand and understanding the impacts of African American history in Charlotte is a big part of understanding the current civic landscape. And as Amplify Charlotte is a black owned business, we felt it fit to give back to the community by covering the admission for up to 15 attendees! Tickets are limited and if you'd like to join but maybe missed the cut off, Sunday admission is $5.

Sign up today and we will check in closer to the event to reconfirm your commitment to attend! This event is family friendly.

We will meet at the 7th Street Market for a quick orientation, make sure we have the group ready and then head over to the Levine for our 2:30pm tour.

BROOKLYN: ONCE A CITY WITHIN A CITY

Levine Museum of the New South goes to Brooklyn, adding this rich historic neighborhood to its current exhibit #HomeCLT: People. Places. Promises – a multilayered exhibit that explores Charlotte’s neighborhoods as they’ve grown and changed over time through Augmented Reality experiences that bring the stories alive.

Brooklyn: Once a City Within a City, explores the rise and demise of Charlotte’s Brooklyn neighborhood, once the most thriving and vibrant black community in the Carolinas.

Brooklyn gives voice to the memories of former residents and community members. The exhibit encourages reflection about a place that provided opportunities and sanctuary for African Americans, and explores the consequences of urban renewal and what a community may lose in the name of progress and growth. Visitors will also learn about the politics that further segregated the city and deepened the economic opportunity gap that Charlotte continues to struggle with today.
