C-SPAN is shooting stories this week focusing on the history and literacy of Winston-Salem.

The C-SPAN Cites Tour spotlights unique small and midsize cities throughout the country. The stories about Winston-Salem recorded during the week of Feb. 18-22 will air March 17-18 on C-SPAN2’s BookTV and CSPAN3’s American History TV. They will also be available at

Stories will include Old Salem’s Hidden Town, the local Black Panther Party, the Happy Hill community, Wake Forest University’s Maya Angelou collection, the history of Salem College and Academy, Frank Elliott’s book “From Tobacco to Technology,” Author Charlie Lovett’s Lewis Carol collection and an interview with Mayor Allen Joines.

“We hope to introduce America to what makes a place like Winston-Salem so great,” said C-SPAN Producer Ashley Hill. “I think we will also show you something you might not have known about your own community or forgotten about your own community.”

C-SPAN is working with its Spectrum cable partner, which offers the C-SPAN stations.
