Non-profit StoryCorps visits Chattanooga, wants to put your story on historical record
A national non-profit wants to put your story on historical record.
They're called StoryCorps, and their mission is to celebrate the stories of everyday Americans.
Their mobile recording studio will be parked outside of Miller Park for three weeks.
StoryCorps has collected more than 65,000 interviews from people all over the country. It is the largest single collections of human voices ever recorded.
They will record you and your loved one having a conversation about anything.
It will then be sent to the National Library of Congress in Washington.
"We think it is important to have people of all different backgrounds an opportunity to tell their story and have it on historical record," says StoryCorps site manager Jacqueline Van Meter. "The historical narrative doesn't always include everybody, and this is a chance to put stories and telling into the hands of the people living everyday lives."
StoryCorps has also partnered with WUTC to collect 125 interviews with Chattanoogans.
They'll air a selection of those conversations and create special programs around the project.
The mobile recording booth will be in Chattanooga through April 7th.
You can make a reservation on their website here or by calling 1-800-850-4406.
