In 2006, the members of Grace A.M.E. Zion Church left the only church building to survive the destruction of Charlotte's Brooklyn neighborhood and walked 11.5 miles north to establish a new home in the University area. Like their neighbors in Browne's Ferry, the congregation has seen that part of Charlotte become a diverse, thriving community. Based on interviews with Browne's Ferry residents and members of the Grace congregation and featuring Hip-Hop artist YUNG Citizen, the Charlotte Strings Collective, literary artist Malika Stevely, and dancer/choreographer Ashley L. Tate with UNC Charlotte Dance alumni, Brooklyn to Browne's Ferry tells this inspiring story in a multi-arts blend of sights, sounds, and movement.
