About This Exhibit

Through the Special Collections Unit at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, this online exhibit began in the spring semester of 2011. Graduate Assistant Evan Faulkenbury, under the guidance of Katie McCormick, Assistant University Librarian for Special Collections, researched and constructed this project as part of a physical exhibit within the J. Murrey Atkins Library. All materials published are located in the Special Collections Unit at UNC Charlotte.

This exhibit does not claim to be an exhaustive representation of Charlotte's long and complex racial history. Rather, the J. Murrey Atkins Library hopes the visualization of certain key items will spark an interest for those curious to know more about Charlotte's past.
