 Historic West End are balancing anticipation and wariness about the CityLynx Gold Line’s impact on the Northwest Corridor. As new infrastructure and development comes to historically Black neighborhoods in west Charlotte, residents are concerned longtime homeowners and businesses could be forced out as a result of gentrification.

Museum of the New South historian Willie Griffin will provide historical context regarding the community divide of light rail coming to the Northwest Corridor. Differing community perspectives will be presented by Mattie Marshall, president of the Historic Washington Heights Neighborhood Association; Wesley Heights resident and activist Colette Forest; and Hyde Park resident Ron Cureton. The audience will then be given an opportunity to participate in the conversation.

The event will be moderated by Tiffany Capers, Executive Director of Crossroads Corporation.
