Nashville’s StoryCorps Star

Posted on Thursday, September 11th, 2008.

Susie Black and James Staub

The Nashville Facilitators would like to thank interviewer and StoryCorps ambassador extraordinaire James Staub for his thoughtful and enthusiastic support of the Nashville StoryBooth this year.


James has either participated in or recruited participants for nine interviews since September 2007, including Hector Black’s interview, which aired on NPR’s Morning Edition this winter. Like Hector, many of James’s storytellers spoke of their experiences with grief and reconciliation (James is active in Tennessee Coalition to Abolish State Killing and Murder Victim’s Families for Human Rights). Such interviews have enriched the StoryCorps archive beyond description.

James’s enthusiasm for StoryCorps is evident in these photos. Facilitators came to appreciate and anticipate his quick smile, eager spirit, and contagious laughter. Thank you, James!

  • I just want to say thank you to all the Nashville facilitators! You’ve shared such amazing stories on the blog, and I’m in awe of the great work you do when you are physically so far from the support of the office. All of you are StoryCorps stars to me!

  • The Hector Black clip is one of the interviews that I have not been able to shake since I first heard it. James, thank you for making these interviews possible, for giving voice to such difficult issues.
