Would you like a quick history story about the Brooklyn Collective in Charlotte, North Carolina? Kevin & Monique Douglas are taking good care of the legacy along with a community stakeholders. Studio 229 on Brevard is where our conversation began and things are growing. 

The Brooklyn Collective is a place with a purpose. Located in a historic block of Charlotte between 3rd and 4th streets on S. Brevard and is one of the last pieces of African-American history of a neighborhood formerly known as “Brooklyn” in Charlotte, NC. We are a collective of diverse business owners who are committed to preserving this history and telling the stories and emulating the founders drive for economic mobility, entrepreneurship, social consciousness and celebrating local artistic talent.

Built in 1922, the Mecklenburg Investment Company (MIC) Building is one of the last remaining buildings in Charlotte’s historic Brooklyn neighborhood. Brooklyn was a predominantly black community that existed as a “town within a town” in Charlotte’s Second Ward until the neighborhood was almost entirely displaced due to a wave of urban renewal in the 1960s and 70s.
