The NEW New South


The New, New South WFAE's Charlotte Talks and WUNC's The State of Things join forces to talk about today's definition of the South, and specifically, North Carolina. There was once "The NEW South," but with so many business, economic, political and cultural changes across the region, it looks like the "NEW SOUTH" is evolving into something else, whether it's in Charlotte via the banking industry or the Triangle in the realm of science and technology, or beyond. This hour we'll talk about some of the ways that North Carolina is helping to redefine the face of the South. Guests Dr. Tom Hanchett - Staff Historian, Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte Dr. David Goldfield - Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at UNC Charlotte Dr. Kerry Haynie - Associate Professor of Political Science at Duke University Rick Rothacker - Financial Reporter, The Charlotte Observer and Author, Banktown: The Rise and Struggles of Charlotte's Big Banks Justin Catanoso - Executive Editor, The Triad Business Journal in Greensboro
