Gathering Life Stories-Old Lesbian Oral Herstory Project

Feb 24, 2020

2/22-Alb., What is the value in preserving women's stories? We hear from a New Mexico recorder and a participant in the project that started in Texas.

Ann Nihlen, recorder for OLOHP: "I heard about it and......My People! My people! I can do this. Finally I can interview my own people! And so, I was totally thrilled. I just want to have the opportunity to interview women who want to be interviewed and to listen to their stories and to pay homage to how we survived."

Linda Lopez McAllister, interview subject: "I belong to OLAC, here in Albuquerque-Old Lesbians Organizing for Change. They mentioned this and I thought-gee, that would be an interesting thing to do. So, I signed up."
