SORTING OUT THE NEW SOUTH CITY
SECOND EDITION

1pm-2pm

Admission limited to 35. Tickets are $8/person.

How did American cities become segregated — both by race and income? Historian Tom Hanchett visits to talk about the new edition of his UNC Press history book Sorting Out the New South City. It uses Charlotte as a case study to explore the public policies and private choices that dramatically increased segregation during the 20th century. It is history that can help us understand issues that are swirling in the headlines today.

Dr. Tom Hanchett retired in 2016 as staff historian at Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte. He writes widely on Southern history and culture, including studies of Rosenwald Schools, country music in North Carolina, and immigrant foodways in today’s South.
