Meet Museum Members: Polly & Marcia


From Southerners whose families have lived in Charlotte for generations, to folks who have just moved to Charlotte, Levine Museum has members that are vibrant, diverse, multi-generational, and advocates for our community. Each month, we will feature some of our biggest supporters. 

Q: When did you become a Museum member and  why did you choose to become members?

The Levine Museum of the New South was one of the first places we visited when we moved to Charlotte from London just over a year ago. We love that through Levine Museum exhibits and events we can simultaneously get a better understanding of the history of the South as well as actively participate in its present and future. The Museum staff does a wonderful job of fostering the kind of diverse and inclusive community so deeply needed at this time.

Q: What are some of your favorite programs and events at Levine Museum and why?

We've learned so much from all of the events we've attended. The community discussion held during the opening of the K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace exhibit was both heartbreaking and powerful. Another one of our favorite events so far was the recent Breaking Bread dinner discussion on the Women's March. We loved hearing what so many strong and inspiring women had to say about how we can change this community and the world. And of course the food-focused events are informative...and delicious!

Q: What's your favorite Levine Museum memory?

When HB2 was passed shortly before we came to Charlotte in 2016, we began to question if moving to North Carolina was the right decision. From our first day in Charlotte, however, the Levine Museum made us feel not only welcomed but valued. One of the most transformative events we attended at the Levine Museum was a roundtable discussion on the impact of HB2 on the Charlotte LGBTQ community. We were so moved by the fierce compassion and humor of the individuals who shared their stories that day. Because of events like this one, as well as K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace and the Breaking Bread series, we are excited and hopeful about the future of the South and our role within it. 

Thank you so much for all you do!
