Charlotte’s West side has long felt neglected and leaders there believe that perhaps shedding some light on that area’s history and its contributions to the fabric of Charlotte might be a catalyst for change. Journalists, historians, and civic leaders have collaborated on “Let There Be Light” edited by Ron Stodghill, a book exploring how Charlotte’s West End continues to shape the new south and several of them join us.
