“Finding Your Roots” is a lively discussion on individual lineage and American history. Dr. Gates will address research and DNA analysis and will also share poignant family stories during his presentation. A Q&A session facilitated by Harvey Gantt will follow.

This annual symposium is hosted by the Gantt Center and the institution’s namesake, Harvey Bernard Gantt, to engage Charlotte citizens in conversation about important topics that are relevant, not only to African-Americans but to the community-at-large.

After the Symposium, join us at the Gantt Center for an exclusive Wine + Champagne Reception with Bernard, Shirley and Khalil Kinsey where they will give a special preview of The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey – Where Art and History Intersect.
