En Foco/StoryCorps Artist Interview: Grace Ali

In our second installment of Artist Interviews, Grace Ali speaks passionately in this interview with Zoraida Lopez about the meaning of home for an immigrant artist from Guyana in the United States. Her need to find herself, allowed for a relationship with New York City to bloom and eventually realized that “home is really where I am in the present moment.”

StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects – Since 2003, they have collected and archived more than 50,000 interviews with over 90,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in order “…to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters.” http://www.storycorps.org

Stay tuned for more interviews, coming soon.
