Selma, Ala.’s about to be in the national spotlight once again.

C-SPAN is in Selma all week filming for its 2018 Cities Tour. The tour takes Book TV and American History TV on the road to feature the literary life and history of selected cities during special weekends on the public affairs network.

“It not only introduces America to what makes each city special but hopefully maybe teaches you something about your own community as well,” said show producer Ashley Hill during a press conference at Selma City Hall on Monday.

The network on Monday began live-tweeting its experience in Selma:

While in Selma, C-SPAN is scheduled to film from the National Voting Rights Museum, the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail, the history of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the Civil War, as well as Old Cahawba.

The Selma segment will air nationwide May 19th and 20th.
