The StoryCorps mobile booth was in Oklahoma City in early 2018, and we're bringing you some of the stories that were recorded here. Locally recorded stories will air Wednesdays during Morning Edition and All Things Considered on KOSU.
Amanda Williams' father is a member of the Cheyenne tribe, but her mother, Rebekah, is white. Amanda brought her mother to the StoryCorps mobile booth to talk about that interracial marriage and her first experience with racism in western Oklahoma.
This story was produced for KOSU by Rachel Hubbard and Dustin Drew, with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a renowned nonprofit organization celebrating the stories of everyday Americans.
Thank you to Phillips Murrah law firm for sponsoring StoryCorps' visit to Oklahoma City.
