The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture

The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture Review

This museum is in a section of Uptown that was once a thriving African-American neighborhood. Historic Brooklyn, as it was known, is long gone, but this celebration of black art, history, and culture serves its memory well. Past exhibits have included Tavis Smiley's "American I AM," detailing the imprint of nearly 500 years of black contributions to American culture. While the exhibits change frequently, you can always see John and Vivian Hewitt's collection of African-American visual art.
