In an effort to make local history tangible, the Charlotte Museum of History presents its second installment of Charlotte Neighborhoods. In the exhibit, Brooklyn and Biddleville, two of Charlotte's earliest African-American neighborhoods, are explored through culture, architecture, and historical relevance. Brooklyn was part of Charlotte's first urban renewal projects and lost much of its rich history in the process. Biddleville, which was on the outskirts of downtown, escaped the destruction and was able to preserve the cultural history of Brooklyn while maintaining its own. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. $6. Charlotte Museum of History, 3500 Shamrock Drive. 704-568-1774. www.charlottemuseum.org.
