This edition of Narrative features an interview from StoryCorps, an oral history project based on the idea that the stories of everyday people are the most important and interesting of all. When StoryCorps visited Charleston in 2012, journalist and author Herb Frazier talked with facilitator Erin Dickey about growing up in the Ansonborough neighborhood during the Civil Rights era.


Herb Frazier also shared about growing up at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, where his father, Benjamin Frazier, was posted in 1965.
