As Told

As Told is an oral histories project aimed at recording and publishing the stories of Clinton Hill- and Fort Greene-area senior citizens in Brooklyn, New York. In light of social and economic transformations in  these neighborhoods, we believe it is valuable to document the history of our community's oldest residents by gaining knowledge of their daily lives and their journeys. As Told creates a forum for those who have persevered through many waves of change to share their experiences while finding ways to honor and learn from their wisdom.
