StoryCorps Stories

Slavery by Another Name partnered with StoryCorps, one of the largest non-profit oral history projects of its kind, to capture stories for this project.

Recorded by StoryCorps in Birmingham, AL; Atlanta, GA; New York, NY; and in Washington, D.C, these stories were produced by Twin Cities Public Television using archival images and documentary footage.

Stories teach history. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 35,000 interviews from more than 70,000 participants. To record a conversation with StoryCorps, find the location nearest you and reserve an appointment online or by phone. Or record your own story using the free and easy to use Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide which shows you how to record interviews and start your own family archive at home.
