StoryCorps is an independent non-profit 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 the largest oral history project of its kind, creating a growing portrait of who we really are as Americans.
StoryCorps has travelled across the country, visiting 100 towns and cities in 46 states - nearly 15,000 interviews in all. It is the largest oral history project of its kind.
StoryCorps has two StoryBooths in New York City, one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and another in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition, our three MobileBooths travel cross-country, collecting the stories of everyday Americans.
StoryCorps operates several special initiatives, including the Griot Initiative, the Memory Loss Initiative, and the September 11th Initiative.
Each StoryBooth is affiliated with a local public radio station. With the permission of the participants, edited stories from each booth are broadcast on the partner public radio station. Some are broadcast nationally on NPR’s Morning Edition and News & Notes. Interviews recorded are added to the StoryCorps Archive, housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
StoryCorps participants receive a broadcast-quality copy of their interview on CD at the end of their session.
