StoryCorps Comes To Rhode Island
Story Corps, the organization that collects the voices and histories of people across the country is in Rhode Island.
It is a chance for homeless residents across the state to tell their story.
In the offices of the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless, pairs of Rhode Islanders interviewed each other. One of them had experienced homelessness, and they talked about their lives on the streets.
Richard Staples interviewed Don Larson, a man who was homeless when he was 16-years-old.
“I was spellbound to be honest with you. For me it was just kind of incredible to hear this story of someone really who, in Rhode Island given our size is really a neighbor, and what he experienced literally just a few miles from my doorstep," said Staples.
All the forty-minute interviews about homelessness collected from Rhode Islanders will be archived at the Library of Congress in the American Folk Life Center.
