9:00 Wednesday, December 17, 2014

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.
