A group of Oakland public school third graders were given an assignment: interview your parents and grandparents, and record their stories about growing up in the U.S. or moving to this country. The local nonprofit running the project, ALICE Arts, found itself with over 400 oral histories -- immigrant stories from Cambodia to Africa's Gold Coast and beyond. The resulting radio documentary will air on KQED on May 31.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Albert Greenberg, co-artistic director of ALICE Arts
  • Helen Stoltzfus, co-artistic director and co-founder of ALICE Arts
