Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. @ Levine Museum of the New South
Oct 8 2022 – Mar 12 2023 all-day

Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture and Levine Museum of the New South are proud to collaborate and bring the dynamic exhibition Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. to our Charlotte community.

Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. profiles the revolutionary men—including Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, W.E.B Du Bois, and Kendrick Lamar—whose journeys have altered the history and culture of the country. The achievements of the men are woven within the legacy and traditions of the African American journey—achievements of excellence in spite of society’s barriers.

Together, Levine Museum and The Gantt will share the stories of these revolutionary men. Told across seven themes, Levine Museum will display CatalystsMyth-Breakers, and Community and The Gantt will display StorytellersFathering, and Imagining; both museums will display Loving.

Men of Change was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and made possible through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund.

Free admission to the Men of Change Exhibition at Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture and Levine Museum of the New South is made possible by generous support from Wells Fargo.
