StoryCorps Oral History Project calls for Day After Thanksgiving to be a 'Day of Listening'

Breaking News

WASHINGTON — Instead of rushing to stores the day after Thanksgiving, organizers of an oral history project are urging people to join the National Day of Listening.

The event began last year on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The New York-based StoryCorps project led thousands in interviewing their friends and loved ones about their lives and recording the conversations with home equipment.

The interviews can be uploaded to StoryCorps' Web site. Some will be broadcast on public radio stations.
