The Levine Museum of the New South is one of the city’s most intellectually engaging cultural treasures. The museum’s exhibits chronicle Charlotte’s constant transformation as a New South city. The museum’s featured speakers and programs continue to challenge us to embrace the city’s growth and diversity. Thankfully, the museum hasn’t shied away from the fact that these changes have been challenging for some whether the issue race, immigration, sexuality or homeless, the museum seeks to explore tough issues.
This weekend the New York Times recognized the museum’s contribution to our collective dialogue in an extensive feature article saying, “The achievement of the Levine Museum of the New South, which opened in 1991, should not be underestimated.”
