Shelter Series: The African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for a Shelter Series about The African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale on April 12th at 4pm
Historic Rosedale strives to inspire visitors to think deeply about the history of Charlotte, the state of North Carolina and the United States. Through their African American Legacy project, they are formulating steps to expand and promote the truthful, compassionate, and equitable presentation of the African Americans – both enslaved and free – who lived and worked on the site through over 200 years of history.
Join representatives from Rosedale for an in-depth look at this ongoing, multi-year initiative as they talk about how they’re incorporating research, oral histories and family genealogy into exhibits, programing, and special events.
The Rosedale Historic Site is currently hosting the We Built This Exhibit through June 17th.
