Harvey B. Gantt Center

The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, formerly known as the Afro-American Cultural Center, is located in Charlotte, North Carolina and named for Harvey Gantt, the city’s first African-American mayor and the first African-American student at Clemson University. The current 46,500-square-foot building, four stories tall and built for $18.6 million, opened and was named for Gantt in October 2009 as part of what is now called Levine Center for the Arts on South Tryon Street.
