Almost 20 years of The Chronicle from Winston-Salem are now online thanks to our partner, Forsyth County Public Library. Issues of The Chronicle continue to be published on a weekly basis, and this new batch covers the years 1997-2016 minus 2000. This batch joins previously digitized issues spanning 1974-1996.

The Chronicle targets the African-American community in Winston-Salem, and their website states, “We focus on positive news happening in Winston-Salem and some surrounding areas.” Topics covered include Arts & Lifestyle, Business, Education, Local News, Government, Health, Religion, and Sports. These papers offer a look at Winston-Salem’s changing and cultural landscape and community from the 1970s through today. Click here to browse through all digitized issue of The Chronicle.
