Inspiration for Autobiographies…

For all those autobiographies, oral history interviews, and even sometimes family trees kids have to write, I found this thirteen-year-old Museum of the Person in Brazil to be very inspiring. To acknowledge that everyone has a story to tell really values the worth and dignity inherent in each of us. I also like the use of digital media, though I know Harvard libraries (for example) are urging people to give paper copies of information. In our home for example we have a film reel of my in-law’s wedding but no equipment with which to view it. So if you make a video of a grandparent, you might also want to transcribe what they said and print a few still shots.
