Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City Much has been written about Charlotte's ascent from small southern town to big banking city, but none so far have focused on how Charlotte has become a city with global connections while still maintaining its identity as a New South City. We'll talk with the editors of a new book called Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City. We'll find out how Southern culture and world-wide business combined to create the Charlotte that we know now and how the two sides of Charlotte's "personality" depend on each other. Guests William Graves - Co-editor, Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City and Assoc. Professor of Geography and Earth Sciences at UNC Charlotte Heather A. Smith - Co-editor, Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City and Assoc. Professor of Geography and Earth Sciences at UNC Charlotte and Director of the Urban Studies minor at UNC Charlotte Amazon | Charlotte, NC: The Global Evolution of a New South City Event | Smith and Graves speak Nov. 17th at Levine Museum of the New South.
