StoryCorps Historias Community in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Posted on Thursday, July 15th, 2010.

In the past month, people from all over New Mexico have come to StoryCorps’ Mobile Booth in Albuquerque to record a conversation.

Here are your photos! Feel free to download and print your high quality portrait, or email your photo to anyone you’d like.

 

In Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Chimayó, people have talked about family, history, and heritage in all kinds of ways. We’ve heard from teachers, mothers, master adobe builders, curanderas, pueblo leaders, activists, artists, and beyond. People have talked about having children, getting married, building homes, red chile, green chile, migration, genealogy, and living in New Mexico for 12 generations. They’ve talked about losing loved ones, maintaining culture, and finding strength in family and friends when times are hard.

Some of these conversations have already played on KUNM. (Click here to listen.) All will join a national oral history archive at the Library of Congress. All have gone home with you on a CD to listen to and share.

From everyone at StoryCorps Historias: THANK YOU! It has been a pleasure and an honor to hear your stories.

Sincerely,
The StoryCorps Team

P.S. We’d also like to extend a special thanks to our wonderful hosts, KUNM and the National Hispanic Cultural Center, as well as to our many community partners: Connecting Community Voices, De Colores, LULAC National Education Services, KUNM youth radio, Southwsest Organizing Project, New Mexico Humanities Council, ArtStreet, HealthCare for the Homeless, Tale & Trails Storytelling, Latin American & Iberian Institute, The University of New Mexico, the Sierra Club, Varones del Siglo 21, National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico, National Latino Behavioral Health Association, Las Comadres, New Mexico HIV/AIDS Advocacy Network, New Mexico AIDS Services

  • What a wonderful way to preserve. Your service will be appreciated by those with a vision and a thrist for knowing where they are from. I love it! Had a chance to listen to one of your interviews “Mom – Neri and Aunt Evita”…..I’ve heard some of the stories before, but it’s nice to know they are now preserved. Thank you!
