Thanks to the active Winston-Salem Chronicle, which is still in publication, and to the Forsyth County Public Library, DigitalNC now has back issues of the paper available online. The issues date from 1974 to 1996.
The Winston-Salem Chronicle is the city’s oldest community newspaper. The first issue was published in 1974 and it has since been a well-respected, weekly news source that focuses on the African American community in the city.These issues could be excellent resources for those interested in studying community development and activities from the perspective of a minority voice, which
is sometimes overlooked in mainstream media.
