Community Read: KnowCLT Brooklyn Tour (Staff-guided)

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Founders Hall

Description

Read “Tomorrow’s Bread” by Anna Jean Mayhew during March 2022 and then join us for the KnowCLT Tour meeting in front Library's Founder's Hall Temporary Location (100 N. Tryon St., Ste 290) in celebration of the Community Read. Grab your headphones, take a stroll around Charlotte, and explore the history of the City’s people, places and promises with Levine Museum’s new free app, KnowCLT.

Your first journey within the app is an immersive GPS-based experience of Charlotte’s Brooklyn neighborhood, once the largest and most vibrant Black community in the Carolinas.

With KnowCLT, you can delve into the story of Brooklyn. The experience recounts Brooklyn’s history through narration, photos, poetry, and the voices of former residents. When touring on foot, you can choose your own path, exploring seven historic sites that come alive through augmented reality. Did you know that Brooklyn had the city’s first public library for Black Charlotteans? Hold your phone up to the site where the library once stood and see Brevard Street Library appear on your screen, as it once was.

KnowCLT also allows you to collect achievements and redeem rewards at Black-owned businesses.
