Our Streets, Our Stories
Our Streets, Our Stories: A Brooklyn Neighborhood Oral History Project
Our Streets, Our Stories is an oral history project that records our neighbors' stories about Brooklyn's neighborhoods. Come to a training to learn how to conduct and record a successful oral history interview. Recordings will be placed in our permanent archive.
This project is provided by the Brooklyn Public Library's Brooklyn Collection and the Services for Older Adults department. This project will be ongoing, collecting as many interviews as possible. You do not have to come to a training to become an interviewer or interviewee, or both. Each branch is maintaining a sign-up sheet to match up people that are available to interview others, and those that want to tell their stories.
You can attend either training session; it is not necessary to attend both sessions at a branch.
