Charlotte finds itself in a unique moment: Many of its top political and civic leaders are African-American. At a time when many of the city’s biggest problems center on inequities along racial lines, it seems like an historic opportunity. WFAE’s Charlotte Talks gathers some of these leaders to talk about their visions on building an inclusive city.
