More Than Coffee: History and Legacy with Archive CLT

All ages
  • About This Program

    Why is the preservation of our cultural and historical records so important? Learn how archivist and storyteller Cheryse Terry is answering this question through Archive CLT, her coffee shop on the west side of Charlotte.

    In this program, Kenya Augurson, member of the Archive team and owner of "By Any Beans Necessary" will journey us through the African-rooted history of coffee while Cheryse and special guest Ken Koontz bring us rich history of Black Charlotte, all while detailing Cheryse's plans for the future of Archive CLT. The conversation will be preceded by a community tasting of the coffee shop's signature beverages.

    Enjoy a fresh blend of history and cultural preservation, in partnership with Black female-owned book cafe, Archive CLT.
