Levine Museum of the New South oral history projects
Scope and Contents
The Levine Museum of the New South collection is divided into thirteen series that cover a variety of historical topics related to the Charlotte region during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Museum staff, student interns and consultants conducted the interviews between 1990 and the early 2000s. Many of the series were created as an accompaniment to museum programming during this time, while others reflect a desire to document a disappearing local history. Subjects explored in these interviews include religion, civil rights struggles, the lives of women and minorities, a local business’s culture, and changing trends in the region.
- Creation: 1964 - 2002
