CHARLOTTE, N.C.  -- The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African- American Arts + Culture is on South Tryon Street in uptown.

The  center celebrates the contributions of Africans and African-Americans to American culture and serves as a community epicenter for music, dance, theater, visual art, film, arts education programs, literature and community outreach.
