La Vida Latina: 21st Century Life in Charlotte
UNC Charlotte and its Center for the Study of the New South, as part of our partnership with the Levine Museum of the New South, are hosting a panel discussion about Charlotte’s Latino population, engaging the audience in a conversation about the opportunities and challenges Latinos encounter living in Charlotte and the Mid-South. The event will begin at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, Oct. 6 at the Levine Museum of the New South.
The first in a series of community conversations this year that engages the museum’s ¡NUEVOlution! Latinos and the New South exhibit, the series kicks off with a discussion of the complexity of the Latino population in Charlotte and the Mid-South, contrasting the city’s “hyper-growth” for the past 15 years with our long history of Latinos with many different nationalities, cultures, and socio-economic backgrounds coming to our area.
