We’ll visit Charlotte as it was in the 1930’s. We’ll talk with Dr. Tom Hanchett from the Levine Museum to share the comparisons from the Great Depression here in Charlotte to the economic downturn we’ve experienced in the last year. We’ll talk about what happened, about the recovery back then, and how city leaders can learn from what leaders did back then to get Charlotte back on track. We’ll also hear how Depression-era Charlotteans celebrated the holidays.
