Harry Golden: 'Carolina Israelite'


Although Harry Golden was not a native Charlottean, it didn’t take him long to become an integral part of the life of the city when he arrived to write for the Charlotte Observer in the 1940s. He would go on to publish The Carolina Israelite, writing on topics important to him, speaking his mind and changing others. Now there is a book about his life and we find out from his biographer why his words still have importance.

Kimberly Marlowe Hartnett speaks on May 31, at 7:00 p.m., “Remembering Harry Golden” at Lerner Hall in the Jewish Community Center, 5007 Providence Road. Info 704-416-0150 or here.
