StoryCorps in Boston


Thursday, September 28, 2006 (All day) to Sunday, October 15, 2006 (All day)

The Pluralism Project has partnered with StoryCorps, the "national project to instruct and inspire people to record each others' stories in sound," to include stories from diverse faith traditions in Boston. This massive oral history project now includes recordings of Research Associate Deonnie Moodie interviewing Affiliate Valarie Kaur on growing up Sikh in America, and Dr. Imam Talal Eid and his daughter Feda Eid on being Muslim in the U.S. You may listen to these and other stories from Bostonians online if you missed them when they aired on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. Other participants included: Vijay Yanamadala and Neel Butala, of Dharma, Harvard's Hindu organization; Imam Salih Yucel of the Boston Dialogue Foundation, and his daughter, Esma Yucel; Dr. Nasswan Dossabhoy and Parastu Dubash, of the Zoroastrian Association of Greater Boston; Ji Hyang Sunim, the Buddhist Chaplain at Wellesley, and her friend Alex Tsouvalas; Kumar Nochur and Saraswathy Nochur, of the Sri Lakshmi Temple in Ashland, MA; and Anjuli Dhindhwal and Chris Byrnes, Harvard Divinity School students and Pluralism Project Research Associates.
