Talking Hip-hop with God 

Rakim returns

One of Charlotte’s original “streetcar suburbs,” Plaza-Midwood’s history dates back to the early 1920s and part of it still are recognized as a local historic district. Here you’ll find grand homes on wide streets, just steps away from some of the most-happening shopping and noshing in town. Central Avenue teems with good food, good buys and good people. (C’mon, where else can you buy a fuchsia wig, get a facial and then chow down on a chili burger?) P-M neighbors are wonderfully convivial, gathering often at their honest-to-goodness community garden, during their “Winter Fling” celebration, and when welcoming visitors to the “Midwood Maynia” festival and home tour. Whoever says Charlotte doesn't have soul hasn't been to Plaza-Midwood lately.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
