It’s not enough for the Gantt Center to have an exhibition such as 1960Now, which displays portraits of figures from the Black Lives Matter movement, inspired by figures of the Civil Rights era. What makes the Gantt different is how it uses its exhibits as a catalyst for community conversation. Public talks and meet-ups are part of that effort. And an annual symposium, with a list of past speakers that includes Dr. Cornel West and Common, show how far the center is willing to go to help Charlotte reflect on the social and racial issues of today.
