StoryCorps: Growing up Asian-American in the North Country

Inside soundproof booths across the country, friends and loved ones are interviewing each other about their lives. The booths belong to StoryCorps, a project that collects the stories of everyday people in order to create an oral history of America. One of these mobile recording studios has been in Canton for the last couple of weeks, and a few days ago Esther Oey from Brushton interviewed her sister, Rebecca. They talked about what it was like to grow up as Asian-Americans in the North Country.  Go to full article

StoryCorps Preserves Hospice Pioneer's Legacy

The StoryCorps booth opens at the Canton village green this morning. StoryCorps helps people set down a record of their lives - the little details as well as the broader, deeper strokes.
Lots of reasons to do that, of course. With permission, the interviews are archived in the Library of Congress. Some are excerpted on public radio. But it's the personal archive that's most meaningful - the voices and memories that may fade, particularly after death. Zelda Foster was an early pioneer in hospice and end-of-life care. For 40 years she fought for people's right to die with dignity. She believed in facing death with honesty and preparedness. For Zelda Foster that also meant recording her story at a StoryCorps booth. Foster died Tuesday. Gregory Warner has this remembrance.  Go to full article
