Texas Public Radio launched Worth Repeating to find and share these stories. San Antonio will celebrate its 300th anniversary in a few short years and unlike its contemporaries Chicago, New Orleans, Boston, and New York, this city's stories are largely unknown. TPR wants to help change that by getting its residents to tell their stories and recognize how important they are even if they don't read like a movie script.
During our season once a month, 7 storytellers will have 7 minutes to tell a true story from their life around a common theme.
Think This American Life or The Moth, but sourced from your friends and neighbors. Public Radio tries daily to educate San Antonio about the world, now we want San Antonio to tell us about itself and its people.
To capture the experiences of the city and its residents, we have enlisted the help of an inaugural group of community members to assist us. You can find out more about this Storyboard here.
Leveraging the volunteer Story Board's knowledge of San Antonio, we can encompass a vast swath of the community. But we will need more than that, we will need your help as well.
