The StoryCorps mobile recording studio, housed in a shiny Airstream trailer, will be outside the California African American History Museum in LA’s Exposition Park from March 24-April 23, 2011.

Ten years ago, StoryCorps began with a small booth in Grand Central Station and ever since they’ve been listening to the unique voices of people across the country. On October 23, join Cheech Marin, Alonzo Bodden, the Hon. Mark Ridley-Thomas, and others at the California African American Museum (CAAM) to kick off this exciting 10-year anniversary!

12:00 pm  -  Press Event featuring Cheech Marin, Alonzo Bodden, and others/musical entertainment and refreshments

KPCC will air a selection of local interviews recorded in the MobileBooth, and create special programming around the project.
