C-SPAN campaign bus plans stop in Biloxi

C-SPAN’s award-winning, 45-foot customized Campaign 2016 bus will visit Biloxi next month as part of a cross-country tour to promote C-SPAN’s “Road to the White House” series and introduce a customized 2016 campaign app.

The bus will be available for tours at Biloxi High School on Nov. 6 from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m.

Students and residents will step aboard the Bus to learn about the public affairs network’s programs and resources, including its in-depth coverage of the U.S. Congress, White House, federal courts, and the American political process. Through interactive exhibits, students and educators will also learn about C-SPAN’s Campaign 2016 coverage and its new history series, Landmark Cases: Historic Supreme Court Decisions.

The C-SPAN stop in Biloxi is being sponsored by Cable One.

This fall, as the Supreme Court convenes for its 2015 session, C-SPAN will debut a new 12-part history series, Landmark Cases: Historic Supreme Court Decisions. Produced in cooperation with the National Constitution Center, the series will explore the issues, people, and places involved in some of the most significant Supreme Court cases in our nation’s history. During the series, the C-SPAN Bus will visit law schools throughout the country to talk to students about our new series.

Civics and government educators will learn about C-SPAN’s free comprehensive online educational resources including C-SPAN.org, C-SPAN Classroom, and C-SPAN’s nationwide documentary contest, StudentCam, open to students in grades 6-12.

C-SPAN, an acronym that stands for Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network, was created by the cable TV industry and now in nearly 100 million TV households. C-SPAN programs three HD public affairs television networks; C-SPAN Radio (nationwide at c-span.org, through the C-SPAN Radio app and on XM Channel 455);  and a video-rich website which hosts the C-SPAN Video Library.
