StoryCorps is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit founded to record, preserve and share stories of Americans’ lives. In the past, StoryCorps used fixed and mobile recording booths, and the stories recorded in them were archived in the Library of Congress.
Now, it is inviting the public to record their own stories of the COVID-19 pandemic from their homes or record others remotely using video conferencing technology. The audio of every StoryCorps Connect recording and a still photo from each interview can, if you choose, go into StoryCorps’ archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
You can record your pandemic story using StoryCorps Connect, following eight simple steps that are outlined on StoryCorps’ website. StoryCorps also has a list of Great Questions that you can ask.
If you make a recording, we hope you will share it with the readers of MyVeronaNJ.com.
