THEATER: Before It Hits Home 

Friday, March 6

The Afro-American Cultural Center and Carolinas Black Pride Movement have teamed up for a production that touches on the AIDS epidemic through the life of one man (Wendel Bailey). In Before It Hits Home, Bailey, an African-American bisexual man in his early 30s, contracts HIV/AIDS, and his health spirals downward. Using his will power and a longing to survive, Bailey regains his health. But, when his loved ones throw him a party to celebrate his recovery, he gets less than he bargained for. What should have been a festive evening erupts into a choatic mess. Bailey, who needs support during this part of his life, now more than ever, ends up finding his encouragement from a source he didn't expect. Written by Cheryl L. West and directed by Jermaine Nakia Lee. Through March 7. $12. 7 p.m. Afro-American Cultural Center, 401 N. Myers St. 704-375-1565. www.aacc-charlotte.org.

  • 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)
