Levine Museum of the New South, at 200 E. Seventh Street, is closed to the public at this time, but it is occasionally offering a virtual event.
In addition, it’s collecting stories from the community through its StoryMining: #COVIDHistory project.
Here’s what they say:At Levine Museum of the New South, we believe that history matters. History shapes who we are as individuals and as a community. History helps us understand the world we live in today and informs the decisions we make in building a better future.
StoryMining: #COVIDHistory is a project of Levine Museum of the New South and a call to the community. We seek to document and share the stories of Charlotteans during these unprecedented times.
Your history is important to Charlotte’s history and you are making history right now.
We invite you to share your stories around this COVID reality we are living. You can do this by recording a short video, writing a short story, taking a photograph, or drawing a picture.
We encourage you to use whatever medium best captures the moment and emotions you are experiencing. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, upload your work to social media and tag it with #CovidHistoryCLT or submit your story below, and our staff will get in touch with you.
You are welcome to submit new stories throughout our collecting campaign.
History of the North Carolina Republican Party
Tuesday, May 19th, 2020
7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Political science professor Michael Bitzer will be THE go-to guy for national media commentary about the 2020 Republican Convention in Charlotte. We have him NOW — with the backstory on the Republican Party’s rise in our state. As recently as 1960, Republicans were so few in number in most places that everyone knew everyone else. Bitzer traces turning points that transformed the party into an NC powerhouse.
Join the Levine Museum for this online discussion hosted by Dr. Tom Hanchett, Historian-in-residence at Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, with Dr. J. Michael Bitzer, T.P. & J.C. Leonard Chair of Political Science – Department of Politics, Catawba College.
Meet our Levine Museum of the New South’s Facebook page Levine Museum on Tuesday, May 19 at 7:00 p.m. EST, for this free program.
