    StoryCorps Griot: Slappy's Days at the Savoy
    NOVEMBER 06, 2007

    This week's installment of the StoryCorps Griot initiative features Harold Slappy. Born in 1912, Slappy recalls his longtime love for the island of Manhattan.

    He has lived almost a century in New York City. At a StoryCorps booth, Slappy talked with his friend, Monica Estaban, about visiting Harlem's Savoy Ballroom as a teenager.

    The StoryCorps Griot booth is currently in Memphis, Tenn. Next stop: Harlem, New York.

    All the Griot Initiative recordings are archived at the Library of Congress. A copy of each interview will also go to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
