If you are a regular listener to WSKG you’re probably familiar with StoryCorps from their weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition. The organization started collecting stories in 2003 and every interview is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. The interviews represent one of the largest oral history projects of its kind and offer people a unique look at many fascinating and important aspects of American life.
StoryCorps features an ambitious oral history project called “The Great Thanksgiving Listen.” The goal is to capture the stories and voices of an entire generation by having students from across the country interview a grandparent or elder over the Thanksgiving holiday. Educators interested in participating can learn more and register for the official toolkit here.
