Charlotte has become home to a number of important art museums and the Harvey B. Gantt Center is no exception. The center is poised to become a repository of African American Art and two upcoming exhibits will only reinforce that distinction.

Tuesday Sept. 7, 2010 | Nazi POWs in North Carolina

Nazi POWs in North Carolina
In World War II, North Carolina held more than 10,000 prisoners of war who were Nazis in camps all around the state. A traveling exhibit (pictured above) that puts that history into a national context arrives in Charlotte next week for a one day stay. We’ll talk to experts, including the curator of the national traveling exhibit, about why these POWs were sent to North Carolina, how long they stayed and what happened to them when the war ended.
Guests
Robert Billinger
– Professor of History at Wingate University and author of Nazi POWs in the Tarheel State
Irving Kellman – Curator of the traveling exhibit, Nazi POWs in the Tarheel State
Sally Robinson – Civilian, has memories of POWs at work in Charlotte
