central-aveCivic By Design: “The Most Interesting Street in Charlotte”
Tuesday October 11, 5:30pm – 7pm FREE
At Midwood International Cultural Center, 1817 Central Avenue, Charlotte 28205

What do Family Dollar, novelist Carson McCullers (Heart is a Lonely Hunter), evangelist Billy Graham and the rock band REM have in common? All trace their early history to Central Avenue. Community historian Dr. Tom Hanchett explores those stories and looks at the avenue’s international landscape today.

Meet at Light Factory photo gallery 1817 Central Avenue, take a quick tour of the Midwood International Cultural Center, then join Dr. Hanchett in the auditorium.
