Event Details

Making Their Mark: Charlotteans Who Shaped the City

Experience History! Making Their Mark highlights men and women – including Catawba Chief Haigler, Julius Chambers, Romare Bearden, and Dr. Annie Alexander - who have influenced the growth of Charlotte’s communities, institutions, and physical spaces throughout its rich history. Explore the stories of Catawba warriors, artists, civil rights activists, educators, leaders in healthcare and more. These individuals came from different backgrounds and lived through different times, yet collectively, their legacies shape Charlotte’s identity.

Dive into archival photographs, collection items from Levine Museum, archived PBS Trail of History episodes, original sculptures by Trail of History artists, and interpretive panels highlighting key turning points in Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s history.

 

Charlotte’s Men of Change

Inspired by the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibition, Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. and curated by Harvey B. Gantt Center and Levine Museum, Charlotte’s Men of Change, honors local Black leaders for their work as businessmen, teachers, political and justice activists, coaches, and visionaries. Their extraordinary stories of determination and resilience hold lessons for us all. An original work of art commissioned by local creatives accompanies each of our featured men, providing new layers of interpretation and symbolism for considering the powerful legacies of Charlotte’s Men of Change.

See website for operating hours.
