A Family Affair
How do we preserve the stories of our community? On our last program, Gladys Haddad talked to the leaders behind the Voice and Action Project, an effort to collect the narratives of East Cleveland residents. This week Gladys meets the residents who are collecting the stories of their fellow community members. Mattie Lavora Perry, freelance writer and resident of East Cleveland, and her daughter Nia D. Perry Richardson, a high school student, discuss their motivations for getting involved in a oral history project and the importance of preserving each other's stories.
