StoryCorps is a national nonprofit organization. Their mission is to provide people of all backgrounds the opportunity to record, preserve and share the stories of their lives. Tens of thousands of people have shared life stories with friends and family through StoryCorps since 2003. It’s one of the largest oral history projects of its kind.
The Flint Public Library received a grant to implement StoryCorps in 2015. We received an extension in 2016 to continue our work about the community at large, and about the water crisis in particular.
Flint is full of remarkable people and important stories, and many shared their stories during the two year period of 2015/16. You can still listen to them at the link below.
