WSOCTV - March 25, 2021

There’s a popular t-shirt geared to Black Americans that displays a quote reading, “I am my ancestors’ wildest dreams.” When The Mecklenburg Investment Company (MIC) was constructed in Charlotte’s Brooklyn neighborhood in 1922, few would have imagined that it would be one of the only buildings to survive the tragic razing of the historically Black neighborhood that would take place during the 1960s.

Charlotte Five - October 13, 2019

The three buildings that stand along South Brevard and Third streets are among the last remaining buildings in what was one of Charlotte’s most prominent black neighborhoods back in the 1960s. For years, the spaces served as the place for people to gather as a community and to share in their success.
