Last year, we made history with The Great Thanksgiving Listen. More than 100,000 Americans took part in our drive to preserve the stories and voices of an entire generation over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Working with teachers and students, we preserved tens of thousands of intergenerational stories in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress using the free StoryCorps app. Hear from StoryCorps Founder and President Dave Isay in this 2016 TED Talk about #TheGreatListen pilot year and some of the incredible stories it generated.
This November, download the app, invite a family member or elder to sit with, and join us in preserving more precious wisdom than ever before.
