"Listen To Your Mother"

The Jewish Women’s Archive was the community partner for the Boston New Center for Arts and Culture’s last program of the season on May 6, “Listen to Your Mother,” featuring StoryCorps founder David Isay. He played a number of clips from StoryCorps interviews and closed the evening with a “sneak preview” of StoryCorps’ newest venture which will be broadcast on PBS this summer -- an extremely effective animated version of a conversation between a mother and her young son.

The highpoint of the evening for me was Isay’s interview with JWA’s former Director of Oral History, Jayne Kravetz Guberman, and Millie Kravetz, who is both Jayne’s mother-in-law and her stepmother.

Jayne and Millie participated in StoryCorps a number of years ago, and the story of their long, loving, and “complicated” relationship appears in Isay’s new book, Mom: A Celebration of Mothers.
