Jacksonites: share your story and become a part of history

JACKSON, Wyo. — Jacksonites are invited to participate in a community-wide oral history project, “Voices of Jackson”, giving them a chance to be on the radio and be remembered when future Jackson residents look back on 2020.

With the pandemic, a national election, and racial injustice “Voices of Jackson” would like you to share your perspective of the year 2020. You can either stop by the Teton County Library to participate on Nov 17, 18, or 19 from 4 – 7 p.m. or visit 891khol.org to submit your own recording. For those that come in person, photographer David Agnello will be photographing participants for an upcoming exhibit.

Participants will be asked to answer the following questions:

  • What does this moment feel like to you, a resident of Wyoming?
  • What is unique about living here through 2020?
  • What are you hopeful about?
  • What are you concerned about?

Please note that Covid protocols will be enforced, with masks required, sanitation, and physical distancing.
