Brooklyn: The Collective Memory

September 29 – October 8, 2022

Studio 229
229 S Brevard St.
Charlotte, NC 28202

Tickets: Free

The Collective Memory project commemorates and celebrates Charlotte’s once vibrant Black Wall Street community known as Brooklyn– upholding the legacies of those who came before us. The interactive exhibit invites people to learn the history of the once flourishing Brooklyn neighborhood through life-size portraits, archival books, and documented videos of former residents sharing their stories. Shedding light on urban renewal and the displacement of minority communities as a by-product, this immersive experience gives visitors an understanding of how we navigate the effects of moving people in and out of spaces as infrastructures grow.

Thursday, September 29 at 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, September 30 at 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
