Close Quarters at Meck Jail

If you breeze through the county prison system on your typical drunk driving charge, odds are you'll probably never see the inside of a medium-security holding area like this one in the Mecklenburg County jail. It's for inmates expecting a longer-term stay behind bars. Some can't make the high bonds, and some were refused release by a judge. Each inmate has his or her own no-frills cell. The inmates are free to wander in the common area of the cell block or to use a common bath and shower room with an open front end so guards can easily see what is going on. If they are convicted, most of these men will do their time in the state, rather than the county prison system.

  • 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)
