to all this, we were able to record the life stories of several Fresno
individuals and couples for the Story Corps
is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide people of all
backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the
stories of our lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more
than 45,000 interviews with nearly 90,000 participants. Each conversation is
recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center
at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history
projects of its kind, and millions listen to our weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition and on our Listen pages.
We plan to
further this project, which records personal stories that live on in the
Library Of Congress, later this year, when we will invite a group to come to
Fresno for a two week period. This is an exciting way to get Central Valley
stories into this monumental and historic project. Stay tuned for more details.
