StoryCorps is bringing its Airstream recording studio to Cincinnati in April. The non-profit oral history project is partnering with Cincinnati Public Radio.

Join the 2016 Great Thanksgiving Listen

Nov 17, 2016

Last year, more than 100,000 individuals from all 50 states took part in StoryCorps' national education project that empowers high school students to record conversations with a grandparent or another elder over a single holiday weekend. Working with teachers and students, they preserved tens of thousands of priceless intergenerational stories, and at a time when so many feel their voices aren’t - or weren’t - being heard, the project provides a national platform for listening and empathy.
