"We Are" Exhibit
"We Are" tells the story of the YWCA and its role in the Charlotte community, from its founding in 1902 through present day. The exhibit focuses on the work of the YWCA throughout history with an emphasis on women's rights, racial equality and integration. It also examines more recent YWCA community-oriented programs including Women in Transition, Families Together and Youth Programs. This exhibit will be free and open to the public.
The “We Are” exhibit was prepared by Natalie Blakeney, Daniel Freeman, Sarah Paris, Alicia Prescott, Donna Rogers, Ben Smith, Andrea Smith Jones, and Scott Thomas as part of their participation in Leadership Charlotte Class 34.
