BROOKLYN: THE COLLECTIVE MEMORY
September 29, 2022 - October 8, 2022$5
Amid the shock of the new in Charlotte’s Second Ward, we tread respectfully among ghosts. Brooklyn, a tightly knit self-sustainable city within a city, was eviscerated and demolished in the 1960s and 70s in the name of so-called urban renewal. The awareness of what we lost in the gutting of a once vibrant Black community informs the Collective Memory project, which commemorates and celebrates Brooklyn. The interactive experience immerses us in the history of the once flourishing neighborhood through life-size portraits, archival books and documented videos of former residents sharing their stories.
