My Day Job

StoryCorps Griot is a national oral history project that is designed to collect the stories of African Americans. An airstream trailer outfitted with a soundproof recording studio will travel around the country for the next year to reach out to nearly 2,000 families. Yesterday, I welcomed the press to its Atlanta launch.

WABE's Senior Vice President John Weatherford introduces me.

Weatherford and I standby as Griot's first interview participant Reverend Chuck Barlow tells the audience about his work in the community.

Reverend Barlow, Barlow's sister Cheryl, and WABE Board member Kevin Ross listen in.
