"Dr. Charlotte Hawkins Brown was born on June 11, 1883, in Henderson, NC. One of the many skills Charlotte’s mother passed down to her was the ability to play the piano. Throughout her life Charlotte would turn to music and art to express herself, to fundraise, to celebrate, and to teach students.
In a short autobiography written around 1927, Dr. Brown writes about her “insatiable thirst for art…” We’ve decided to take this opportunity, her 140th birthday, to celebrate that thirst and share art in its many forms with our community. Black Heritage Day was conceived as a celebration of Black life, history, culture, food, and so much more. This year we’re working with the Greensboro Opera, hence the Afro-Classical Celebration. Our headline musician is the enormously talented Chrystal E. Williams, alongside Felipe Hostins," Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum State Historic Site.
