The C-Span Campaign 2012 Bus will be in downtown Raleigh on Monday with special programs highlighting Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.
The bus, which will open to the public at 9:30 a.m. on Edenton Street near the capital, comes to Raleigh as part of C-SPAN's "Road to the White House" tour. It will move at 10:45 a.m. and reopen at 11 next to the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts at the Corner of Wilmington Street and South Street.
Visitors will be able to access information both inside and outside the bus on HD TVs, touch screen computers, laptops, and mobile devices. The content will consist of archival clips and historical programming focusing on Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement.
There will also be plenty of C-SPAN content on the 2012 elections and archived campaign video going back to 1987.
The bus heads to Charlotte and then Greenville and Columbia, South Carolina, next week when it leaves Raleigh.
C-SPAN is partnering with Time Warner Cable and The Martin Luther King Celebration Committee of Raleigh for Monday's events.
