Learning Local lectures: Charlotte's Historic West End

Saturday, February 22, 2020 @ 10:30am
President James K. Polk State Historic Site

Come hear Johnson C. Smith University archivist, Brandon Lunsford, tell the story of the National Endowment for the Humanities-funded project, "Charlotte's Historic West End." The aim of the project and its digital mapping components is to provide a platform for publishing location‐based content including historical photographs, documents, and oral histories that will tell the story of a vibrant 150 year old African American community that surrounds Johnson C. Smith University on the west side of Charlotte, North Carolina. The Historic West End is a network of neighborhoods that grew up around the historically black college, which was founded as Biddle Institute by Presbyterian ministers in 1867.

Seating for this event is limited. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED! Those who register in advance will be seated first.
