Levine Museum of the New South

Join us for a virtual public panel discussion including Wilmarie Medina-Cortes (Humanities Action Lab) and Eboné Lockett (Harvesting Humanity) as they reflect on the exhibition “Climates of Inequalities: Stories of Environmental Justice” and efforts to achieve environmental justice in Charlotte and beyond. Moderated by Levine Museum’s Senior Director of History & Exhibits, Dr. Keri Petersen.

In partnership with UNC Charlotte’s Public History program and the Charlotte Teachers Institute, Climates of Inequality is coming to the Levine Museum of the New South. Within the traveling exhibition of multimedia stories from across North and South America, a featured exhibition, “Climate Refugees in the City of Creeks,” explores histories of environmental change, displacement, and migration in Charlotte. Showcasing voices and artwork of students, teachers, and community members, it highlights Charlotte’s contributions to the environmental justice movement, from the first Earth Day in 1970 to today.

Climates of Inequality is a participatory public memory project and international traveling exhibition created by students, educators, and community leaders in over 20 cities across the US and around the world from Humanities Action Lab.
