Levine Museum of the New SouthLive Events, New South for the New Southerner

Hang out with Time Magazine political correspondent Charlotte Alter and Queen City historian Tom Hanchett as they talk about Alter’s new book, The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For. It explores the growing national impact of the rising generation of political leaders who’ve come of age in the 21st century — the era of 9/11, Iraq and Afghan wars, social media revolution, Great Recession, Black Lives Matter and more. The on-line discussion will feature Charlotte councilperson Braxton Winston, profiled in Alter’s book, and the new Mayor Pro-Tem of suburban Matthews, Renee Garner.
