Everyone’s Got a Skate Story”… Now is the time to Share Yours!
Our Family Skate Association (OFSA) has coordinated with the StoryCorps project to capture roller skate stories…OFSA believes “Everyone’s got a skate story” and wants you to share yours! The StoryCorps project is recording the stories of everyday people throughout the US. All recordings are sent to the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, those captured via the Griot project are also sent to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. All participants receive a copy of their forty-minute recording on CD as well. Excerpts of selected interviews are broadcast on NPR .

OFSA has reserved slots for roller skaters to share their skate stories at the StoryCorp booth in New York’s Grand Central Station and in the StoryCorp GriotBooth, the projects mobile soundproof recording studio which is traveling to select cities.
