Our digital media projects include a new series for PBS North Carolina called Making North Carolina that focus on entrepreneurs from across the state, a weekly radio show in the Piedmont Triad called Our Stories Told Here that focuses on musicians and writers, and a documentary series produced by the Black Empowerment Network telling the stories of North Carolina’s living black leaders.
