Community Building Tip: Oral History

For my current set of tips, I'm using the list "101 Small Ways You Can Improve Your City.

62. Launch an oral history project. From Studs Terkel to StoryCorps, there’s a rich tradition of storytelling as a time capsule of modern life. Documenting your neighbors’s stories preserves the fabric and history of a neighborhood, giving context to why this place and its people matters.

This is especially helpful if you and/or your people are the kind whose stories usually don't get told.
