We visit with two regional arts events today.  Down in Rock Hill, Winthrop University is holding its second annual Create Carolina Arts Festival.  Among this year’s offerings is a new play based on events of the 1870s that intriguingly mirror today’s political world.
Then we talk with folks from Kannapolis based Piedmont Dance Theatre.  Kannapolis is becoming a new town in its post textile phase and arts are a big part of that transformation.

Friday May 23, 2008 | A Purple State of Mind

May 22, 2008 at 11:25 am | Posted in On Air | Leave a comment

On this edition of Charlotte Talks, we meet former college roommates from Davidson College who met in 1985. It was the first year as a person of faith for one roommate, the last year for the other – this produced many discussions and arguments their sophomore year. After college, they lost touch and when they found each other years later, they never talked about those discussions until filming their documentary, “A Purple State of Mind.” A conversation about faith, politics and lessons learned on Charlotte Talks.
