Central North Carolina Sights

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

Updated 11/07/2012

Fodor's 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.
