Experiencing StoryCorps to the fullest

General Larry Platt (above) returns to our StoryBooth this year. Last year he was interviewed by facilitator Nadja Middleton. This year, General Platt was interviewed by Kevin Cook (below), a great admirer of his, while Nadja facilitated. General Platt talked about how Reverend Hosea Williams bestowed upon him the title “General” for his heroic efforts during the Civil Rights struggle.

Kevin was later interviewed by Nadja. A week later a clip of Kevin’s interview was being edited for broadcast on WABE, one of StoryCorps’ partners here in Atlanta, GA… and Kevin (below, right) interviewed one of his friends in the sanctuary of the Omega Holiness Church -during which time Nadja snapped a shot!

Kevin and the person he interviewed at his church share their stories of drug addiction, recent recovery and faith in the Lord.
