City of Winston Salem Mayor Pro Tempore
We invite you to spend time with those who lived the experiences of desegregation and integration in Winston-Salem. Despite unfair and sometimes disturbing situations, many early trailblazers have continued to advocate for equity through their roles in education, government, and community organizations. They are gifted, compassionate, hardworking citizens who have improved our city and school system. Other community voices are also saluted for their vigilant efforts to foster collaboration by using their insight to help address ongoing issues and controversies.
