Grand Opening of Collards + Culture Exhibit at Sugar Creek Library

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's Sugar Creek location is pleased to serve as a host of the LATIBAH Collard Green Museum's traveling exhibit from December 12-January 24.

Collards + Culture is an emotionally moving, life-size installation that explores how Africans were brought to the Americas, enduring the inhumanity of the Middle Passage, and honors their courageous determination and culture.

The December 12 grand opening celebration will begin with a 4 p.m. tour of the exhibit, followed by 5 p.m. re-enactments, dancing, drumming and refreshments. The exhibit will be open to the public December 12-January 24: Monday-Thursday from 4-7 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Special hours available December 27-28 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Additional tours are available upon request.
