Black History in the Making 

As our nation's annual observance of Black History Month kicks in once again, there's no need to flip through history books in search of influential African-Americans — especially here in Charlotte. All you have to do is head down to the Blumenthal, catch a show at Amos' Southend, turn on your radio and/or visit the Harvey B. Gantt Center to witness locals making an impact on our city today — an impact that will last well into the future. To that end, this week we tracked down six of the Queen City's leading cultural icons and found out why and how they are blazing new trails here, across America and around the world ... for all people.
