A Taste of Charlotte, North Carolina

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT CHARLOTTE?

  1. Charlotte is the largest city in the U.S. state of North Carolina and the seat of Mecklenburg County. Charlotte's population was estimated by the US Census Bureau to be 709,441.

  2. The 1903 state charter required a library be opened for the disenfranchised African-American population of Charlotte. This was completed in 1905, with opening of the Brevard Street Library for Negroes, an independent library in Brooklyn, a historically black area of Charlotte, on the corner of Brevard and East Second Street (now Martin Luther King Blvd.)

  3. The Brevard Street Library was the first library for free blacks in the state of North Carolina, some sources say in the southeast. This library was closed in 1961 when the Brooklyn neighborhood in Second Ward was redeveloped, but its role as a cultural center for African-Americans in Charlotte is continued by the Beatties Ford branch, the West branch and the Belmont Center branch of the current library system, as well as by Charlotte's African-American Cultural Center.

  4. Charlotte is located in North America's humid subtropical climate zone. The city has cool winters and warm, humid summers.

  5. The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (AME Zion) is headquartered in Charlotte.

  6. Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts & Culture is located in Charlotte.

- Day-long event motivated youth to excel in academic, financial and personal responsibility -

(BLACK PR WIRE) – Charlotte, March 12, 2014 – The UNCF Empower Me Tour Presented by Wells Fargo- a free, traveling college-and-career readiness roadshow sponsored by UNCF (United Negro College Fund) featured entertainer and host of BET’s “Lift Every Voice” program Fonzworth Bentley and local media personality Tonya Rivens as co-hosts for the Charlotte tour stop this past weekend.
