On episode 23 of the Nooze Hounds podcast, Justin and Ryan talk to Dr. Willie Griffin, staff historian with Levine Museum of the New South; and Pamela Grundy, author of Color and Character: West Charlotte High and the American Struggle Over Educational Equality about the little known parts of Black history in Charlotte. 

We discuss the pieces of Black history in Charlotte that aren’t taught in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, from the time of emancipation up to the present. Be sure to check out Grundy’s new five-part series, the first part of which went live this morning. Also, check out Levine’s exhibit, Brooklyn: Once a City Within a City, as soon as the museums open back up.

Remember you can catch us on Spotify and other places where you find podcasts, and be sure to check out Queen City Podcast Network for a slew of other great Charlotte podcasts that aren’t quite as good as ours but pretty damn close. Find past Nooze Hounds episodes here.
