The America I Have Come to Know through StoryCorps

During this factious time in history, the founder of StoryCorps shares what he’s learned from the 400,000 participants in the StoryCorps archive — the largest collection of human voices ever gathered. He'll play memorable stories, answer questions, and talk about how the lessons learned from StoryCorps might help us begin listening across divides. Join us for an hour of wisdom and hope that reminds us of who we are at our very best.
