Add your voice to the Library of Congress


Take home a free CD of your oral history

StoryCorps Historias, an initiative to gather and preserve in sound the life stories of Latinos across the country, will be in New York City to record your story of endurance, resilience, achievement and hope. Working in partnership with the Center for Puerto Rican Studies, StoryCorps Historias will document the history of your loved ones for generations to come.

A StoryCorps interview is a 45-minute conversation between two people who know each other. A trained facilitator will be present with you and your partner throughout the interview process to help you have a comfortable and meaningful experience, and to handle all technical aspects of the recording.
You'll take home a broadcast-quality audio CD, and with your permission, copies will go to the 
American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Segments of interviews may also air on National Public Radio.

Visit to see sample questions, listen to clips and learn more about the Historias Initiative.
