  1. This innovative Main Street, Carolina project illuminates the process by which Charlotte was "sorted out" into socially and racially homogeneous residential neighborhoods. A generation before, downtown blocks around Trade and Tryon Streets were home to both white and black businesses and residents. By 1911, downtown dwellings had been replaced by commercial buildings. Most downtown businesses were operated by whites. "The People of 1911 Charlotte" repopulates Charlotte's vibrant city center of a century ago and locates each resident and business in the built environment of that time.
