  • About This Program

    Reception and guided tour of museum exhibit from 6:00 PM - 6:45 PM; Panel discussion from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM.

    This event is in partnership with UNC-Charlotte’s Urban Education Collaborative. More specifically, this event will examine new solutions to reducing high-poverty schools in Charlotte and how everyone can get involved in making a difference to support these educational institutions.

    FAQ: What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

    Parking: Parking for The Gantt Center is available in either the Duke Energy Center Visitor Parking (527 S. Church Street) or The Green Garage (435 S. Tryon Street). Discounted parking is available in these two garages to patrons of the Gantt Center ($5) when you bring your parking ticket to be validated. There are also other surface lots and parking garages within short walking distance. Please adhere to those lots and garages prices, terms and conditions.

    Light Rail: Take the LYNX Blue Line to the Stonewall Street station. After exiting the train, walk one block northeast on Stonewall Street towards S. Tryon Street. The Gantt Center is on the corner of Stonewall and S. Tryon Street.

Your support helps the Gantt present exceptional exhibitions, leading scholars and engaging programs that celebrate the African-American story.
