StoryCorps in partnership with POV

"Ron was someone who didn't accept societal norms as being his norm, you know? That was for other people." - Carl McNair, brother of Ronald McNair, the second African American astronaut to visit space

Eyes on the Starts

Since 2003, StoryCorps has provided people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of their lives. In 2007, StoryCorps began its Griot Initiative to ensure that the voices, experiences, and life stories of the African Americans will be preserved and presented with dignity. Select Griot interviews have been broadcast on NPR and turned into short films.
