DeKalb County Public Library partnered with StoryCorps and utilized their StoryKit to record stories during Hispanic Heritage Month, Asian American – Pacific Islander Month and Older Americans Month. The programs celebrated the history, diversity and preservation of residents of DeKalb County. Herbert H. Hamlet participated in a recording and spoke about Rochester, NY and how the migration to the south affected his life. The complete StoryKit interview which was recorded at the Ashford-Parkside Senior Residences is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the U.S. Library of Congress. Following is an excerpt from Herbert H. Hamlet’s interview.
