Social Justice Speaker Series
SouthEnd ARTS’ Social Justice Speaker Series ... February, 2021.
SouthEnd ARTS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE a collaboration with Charlotte’s Brooklyn Collective, a collection of three historic buildings in the Brooklyn neighborhood, gathering civic-minded “makers” (creatives, entrepreneurs, problem-solvers, non-profits, etc) to fill gaps with knowledge, resources and connections.
SouthEnd ARTS is building a community committed to social justice and racial equity through the arts.
The Brooklyn Collective gives Charlotte a place to connect our strengths and the space to build what’s missing. It has always served as a safe space to solve community issues that people in the Black community couldn’t talk about elsewhere.
A DIVIDED CITY
Charlotte is ranked 50 out of 50 in upward mobility, meaning that it’s harder to escape poverty here than in any other big city in the country.
A GROWING CITY
At the same time that our city struggles to close the opportunity gap, 60 people a day are moving to Charlotte in search of their own opportunity.
