This is your chance to contribute your perspective, your vision, and your personal history to the record. We’ve partnered with StoryCorps, giving people of all backgrounds, typically two at a time, the opportunity to record meaningful conversations and archive the recordings at the Library of Congress. Capturing an interview couldn’t be easier: You invite a loved one, or anyone else you choose, to one of the StoryCorps recording sites to share a 40-minute conversation. During this year’s Civic Season celebration, between Juneteenth and July 4th, sign up to record a conversation at the Atlanta History Center location here or catch us on the West Coast as part of our mobile tour here.

Not going to be at one of these events? No problem! You can use the StoryCorps App or StoryCorps Connect and make a plan to record anywhere. When you sign up with the app, use the code civicseason to add your story to our collection!
