Digital NC is happy to announce the new additions of the Winston – Salem Chronicle for the years 2017 and 2018. With help from our partner, Forsyth County Public Library, the new additions join previous editions from 1974 – 2016.
Founded in 1974, the Winston-Salem Chronicle bills itself as the oldest African American newspaper in the city. The newspaper is published every Thursday and discusses local stories that focus on Winston-Salem and surrounding areas.
One story within the Winston-Salem Chronicle discusses the Special Olympics spring games, which were held at Walkertown High. Over 900 athletes from ages 3 and up, gathered to compete in special events at the high school’s football stadium. The story made the front page of the sports section.
