StoryCorps Griot’s youngest participant (perhaps…)

Eugene Young only turned 10 two weeks ago and is already claiming what is rightfully his: a place at the StoryCorps Griot interview table.

Our first Door-to-Door was at ACORN-Chicago, and Eugene had the pleasure of interviewing his mom, Michelle, who adopted Eugene and his sister when he was only three-months old.

Today, with a little help from facilitator Becky Homann, Eugene questioned his mom about her first impressions of him as a baby, her own childhood in Chicago, and the trials (and joys!) of marriage and falling in love. Oh, the mah-velous mind of youth!
