Demographic changes challenge the cultural narrative about what it means to grow up in and to live in the South, and UNC Charlotte’s Center for the Study of the New South looks at these questions in a series of 2016-17 events that kicks off with Puerto Rican Southern Belle: From Harlemworld to Disney World to Mississippi. Join the conversation with Simone Delerme, McMullan Assistant Professor of Southern Studies and assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Mississippi, on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the program will begin at 6 p.m. at the Levine Museum of the New South (200 E. 7th Street, Charlotte 28202). The event is open to the public without charge. Two-hour complimentary parking will be provided at 7th Street Station next to the Museum (between Church Street and the light-rail tracks). The museum will validate parking tickets at its front desk. Registration is required.
