Hailing history and community service, Harvey B. Gantt Center president and CEO David Taylor announced a yearlong initiative to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Afro-American Culture Center.
“This milestone provides an extraordinary opportunity to reflect on the Gantt Center’s role in shaping ideas, people and paths in the Charlotte region over the past four decades,” he said.
The center has set a goal of increasing membership from 700 to 1974, in honor of its founding year. The center will debut the exhibit 40 and County: Celebrating Forty Years at the Gantt Center Through Art, Culture and Community, GanttFest! 2014 on July 26, Gantt Symposium 2014, Jazzy Holiday Gala (not a luncheon) on Dec. 6 and Destination Cuba! in December 2014.
