• Inspiring younger generations to tell their stories
    and connect to their communities.

  • Freedom Story Project

    Freedom Story Project is a project of John Brown Lives! that collects and broadcasts three- to five-minute audio stories and related photographs online, centering around themes of freedom and justice, human and civil rights, activism, and engagement, at local, national, and international levels. We seek to inspire younger generations to tell their stories and connect to their communities and these issues, including through especially powerful personal narratives by elders who share their experiences. Freedom Story Project uses the OurStoryBridge methodology, making stories easily accessible and shareable.
