March 16: StoryCorps records the stories of Haitian & Haitian Americans at Foley Square

In partnership with MoCADA and CCCADI, the national oral history project, StoryCorps will be recording the series of the artists involved in the exhibition as well as members of the Haitian community.
StoryCorps is an independent non-profit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.  Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.  All interviews recorded as part of the Griot Initiative will be archived at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture in addition to the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
If you are interested in making an appointment to have your story recorded, please feel free to email Shante’ Cozier at sc@mocada.org to RSVP.
