New South for the New Southerner: Communities in Charlotte – LGBTQ Charlotte

Tuesday, August 6, 2019
Joshua Burford, NBC New's #Pride50 list of influential LGBTQ Americans, is back at Levine Museum. He first made his mark here in 2014 curating the exhibit "LGBTQ Charlotte” at Levine Museum. Now he leads the Invisible Histories Project collecting lesbian and gay history materials for archives.

He’s back in Charlotte this month to co-lead an oral history project and he’ll invite some history-makers to join us at Levine Museum: philanthropist Wesley Mancini, Latina cultural consultant Gina Esquivel, and Charlotte Black Gay Pride co-founder Jermaine Nakia Lee.

Hosted by Dr. Tom Hanchett, Historian-in-Residence with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library.
