When StoryCorps came to Seattle’s New Holly neighborhood last summer, people from all over the city took the opportunity to visit with a friend or family member and record a conversation. Their stories can stop you in your tracks.
In this hour you’ll hear from our mayor and first gentleman, an activist who disrupted the Bernie Sanders rally last summer, the mother and partner of a man who faced death with style, a man granted clemency after 22 years in prison, two Japanese-American siblings who grew up in Richland, Washington after WWII, a mom and her adopted daughter, and a man sent to pick berries on Vashon Island once upon a time.
StoryCorps at New Holly was produced by Ross Reynolds. You’ll find links to more stories at KUOW’s StoryCorps.
