This collection of interviews is the result of an effort to use new technologies to draw together diverse interviews with a single geographic focus. Charlotte symbolizes much for North Carolinians: the rise of southern business, progressive political and social life, a moderate approach to racial matters, and African American economic leadership. Drawn from many different sources, these interviews feature discussions with African Americans recalling school desegregation in the 1970s and present-day students discussing its legacies; business leaders reflecting on Charlotte's role in North Carolina's economic growth; and community leaders reflecting on the struggles that have shaped the city. Together, they comprise nearly a century of political, social, and cultural history.
