North Brooklyn Narratives

an oral history initiative of 2020 in North Brooklyn

What is it?

North Brooklyn Narratives is a volunteer-led oral history initiative which seeks to collect and preserve accounts of life in Greenpoint & Williamsburg in 2020, covering topics including the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter Uprising, and other experiences of this extraordinary historical moment.

We are compiling oral histories at this time because every person has a story, and every story preserved enriches the historical record, and helps create a more complete, nuanced and honest picture of our collective past. If we are present in our community today, we can create a record for the future.
