Students from HST 370: Topics in North Carolina History worked in collaboration with the New Winston Museum in Spring 2016 to develop an exhibit on the history of music in Winston-Salem.  Students conducted interviews and archival research, produced podcasts, and wrote text for a new exhibit that opened on October 7 at the New Winston Museum downtown (713 South Marshall Street). The exhibit will be on display until March, 2017.  Come check it out!
