Scope and Contents of the Materials

The StoryCorps Historias Interview collection contains 152 interviews recorded from 2009-2010 as part of the StoryCorps Historias project. The interviews held by the Cuban Heritage Collection represent all interviews recorded in Miami and of participants who self-identify as Cuban or of Cuban descent, regardless of place of interview.

In 2009, the Cuban Heritage Collection became a community partner of the Storycorp Historias project, “an initiative to record the diverse stories and life experiences of Latinos in the United States.” As part of this partnership, the Cuban Heritage Collection received all oral histories recorded in Miami and all interviews in which participants self-identified as Cuban or of Cuban descent. The Storycorps Historias interviews held at the Cuban Heritage Collection are available for online viewing at the Cuban Heritage Collection’s reading room.

Biographical Note

The StoryCorps oral histories project began in 2003 as an effort to “provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives.” As of 2015, the project has recorded more than 50,000 interviews with more than 90,000 participants. The work of StoryCorps provides an “invaluable archive for future generations,” and is housed at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
