Charlotte’s Durag Fest is back. The annual event that began in 2018 celebrates Black fashion and culture on Juneteenth. This year’s festival will be at multiple locations, but the event’s founder says it’s been difficult to secure sponsorship a year after so many companies vowed to support Black-owned businesses and creatives.

PODCASTS

SouthBound, hosted by journalist Tommy Tomlinson, features conversations with notable Southerners from all walks of life – from artists to athletes to politicians.
Amplifier, a podcast hosted by Joni Deutsch, explores the Charlotte area music scene, including the artists, the venues and all those who work to bring music to the community.
