Reclaim 37 Part I: Mapping the Historic West End
Johnson C. Smith University
Presented by Levine Museum of the New South
Bring your mobile devices on February 3, 2019, from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM to participate in a public viewing of The Historic West End, an interactive digital mapping project that documents a historic and vibrant 150-year-old African American community surrounding Johnson C. Smith University on the west side of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Funded by a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities and powered by Historypin, the digital map incorporates historical photographs, documents, and oral histories created and collected by the James B. Duke Memorial Library at Johnson C. Smith University and its partner institutions, which include archives, museums, community organizations, and government agencies. The map hosts points associated with important community institutions, events, leaders, and residents in the West End, and describes them with layered content from various sources. It allows users to comment and add to existing content to the map, which allows citizens of the West End to tell their own stories. The public viewing will be held at the James B. Duke Memorial Library and will include light Jazz, food, and guided tours of the library exhibits and the future Makerspace.

This program is funded by the generous support from the ASC Culture Blocks and Johnson C. Smith University. Project partners include Levine Museum of the New South, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and the Carolina Room of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Library.
