What is the Piedmont Triad?
The Piedmont Triad is a large region of northern-central North Carolina and is named after the "Triad" of major cities: Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point. (The Triad is not to be confused with the Research Triangle, made up of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.) It is comprised of 12 counties, spans more than 5,000 square miles, and has a population of about 1.7 million people.

Civil Rights History in the Triad
The Piedmont Triad has a prominent place in the history of the American Civil Rights Movement. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Triad was at the forefront of the desegregation movement. Students of integrated schools in Greensboro led sit-ins at segregated schools, and that sparked and initiated the Civil Rights Movement.
