Climate Inequality CLT is a Charlotte, North Carolina-based research and outreach organization. We are dedicated to spreading awareness about climate change and the historical social injustices caused by environmental disturbance. History graduate students created the projects featured on our site under the leadership of Dr. Tina Shull, director of Public History at UNC Charlotte. The students spent an academic semester researching histories that highlighted climate migration, social injustice, environmental abuse, and urban renewal in Charlotte.
The overarching themes and significant events were then featured in the Climates of Inequality traveling exhibit, presented in Charlotte by the Levine Museum of the New South. The Climates of Inequality organization is created in partnership with the Humanities Action Lab, a coalition of universities led by Rutgers University-Newark. They collaborate with public spaces and institutions that are passionate about showcasing important social issues from the past, present, and future.
