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.

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.

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.
