Story Corps Sessions
August 26 @ 11:00 am - August 27 @ 2:00 pm
StoryCorps is a 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 weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition.
Chicago’s local Peace Corps Office has arranged opportunities for RPCVs to share and record their stories on August 26th and 27th between 11am-2pm. We will be looking for some RPCV’s who want to visit Story Corps with a close friend/partner/family member and talk about their service. Slots are limited.
If interested, contact Rok Teasley of the Peace Corps Office at 312.353.1128
