15 Minutes of Fame with StoryCorp Oral History Project
StoryCorps, the award-winning oral history project, and WKSU are bringing the StoryCorp mobile recording unit to downtown Akron from Aug. 27 through Sept. 19. Don’t miss your chance at 15 minutes of fame! Your recording could be used for segments on NPR’s Morning Edition and, if not, all recorded interviews are archived at the Library of Congress for the entire world to hear.
StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit project whose mission is to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening. By recording the stories of our lives with the people we care about, we experience our history, hopes, and humanity. Since 2003, tens of thousands of everyday people have interviewed family and friends through StoryCorps. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to take home and share, and is archived for generations to come at the Library of Congress. Millions listen to our award-winning broadcasts on public radio and the Internet. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, creating a growing portrait of who we really are as Americans.
