All New South for the New Southerner programs will be hosted by retired Levine Museum historian Dr. Tom Hanchett. This program is geared for adults interested in the history and culture of the Piedmont region in general and the city of Charlotte in particular.

The program will feature guest speakers drawn from academia, publishing, media and the arts. Informal in nature, each program may also feature music, food and drink, short films, interviews, panel discussions and audience participation. The program series is often built through partnerships with organizations with similar mission goals to Levine Museum of the New South.
