This Spring, KCPW will hostStoryCorps, a national initiative to document everyday history and the unique stories of Americans. StoryCorps will be in Salt Lake City from March 26 to May 2, to collect the stories of Salt Lake City residents as part of its cross-country tour. The StoryCorps MobileBooth -- an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio -- will be parked on Washington Square, adjacent to the northeast corner of the Salt Lake City and County Building, and will be open from 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM, Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM, Saturdays and Sundays. StoryCorps plans to collect more than 200 interviews during its stay in Salt Lake City. KCPW will be including interviews with Native Americans as part of its involvement with We Shall Remain. KCPW will work with the Indian Walk-In Center, American Indian Resource Center, the Utah Humanities Council to identify Native students and tribal members who can tell their stories. KCPW will also work with the Center for Documentary Arts, Utah, and Uintah River Charter High School, to conduct two days of interviews on the Ute Reservation in Fort Duchesne, Utah. StoryCorps interviews will be broadcast during and beyond the StoryCorps visit and will be preserved in the Library of Congress.
