Climates of Inequality Exhibit at the Levine Museum of the New South

May 6, 2023 @ 11:00 am - September 9, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

In partnership with UNC Charlotte’s Public History program and the Charlotte Teachers Institute, Climates of Inequality is coming to Levine Museum of the New South. Through virtual reality, moving audio testimony, and historical imagery from each community, the exhibition explores how the climate crisis and environmental injustice is intensifying inequality—and how the experiences of the hardest-hit communities hold the key to confronting these issues and finding ways to move forward.

Within the traveling exhibition of multimedia stories from across North and South America, a featured exhibition, “Climate Refugees in the City of Creeks,” explores histories of environmental change, displacement, and migration in Charlotte. Showcasing voices and artwork of students, teachers, and community members, it highlights Charlotte’s contributions to the environmental justice movement, from the first Earth Day in 1970 to today.

Climates of Inequality is a participatory public memory project and international traveling exhibition created by students, educators, and community leaders in over 20 cities across the US and around the world from Humanities Action Lab.
