Baton Rouge (NBC33) — C-Span and Cox Communications will capture some of the Capitol City's well known treasures for a "Baton Rouge Special."
C-Span photographers say they chose eight cities for a show case and Baton Rouge just seemed to stick out.
C-Span will focus on the history of the State Capitol, how Baton Rouge was the model for the boycott in Montgomery during the Civil Rights movement, and the assassination of Governor Huey P. Long.
C-Span producer Debbie Lamb says with so much great history, Baton Rouge was an easy choice.
"Baton Rouge is our eighth city and we looked at it's unique history and literary culture and decided this would be a great city to cover." Debbie Lamb, an LCV C-Span Producer, said.
