For You and Your Sister

We sometimes forget that our moms were kids once too. They had dreams and hard times and no idea what life would bring.  A child just doesn’t always understand their mom’s  journey unless they ask about it.  That’s exactly what Darnell Gardner did with his mom, Angela, when they came to the StoryCorps Atlanta Booth.  

This story was produced locally for WABE by Brenda Ford and recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center.  Maybe you’d like to record a conversation with your mom. Find out how to make an in-person or virtual reservation by clicking here.
