StoryCorps in KC: Nila Cleaves and Jannise Stallard

By edited by Laura Spencer

Kansas City, MO – At StoryCorps recording booths across the country, friends and loved ones interview each other about their lives. Each Wednesday during Morning Edition, we'll bring you a story recorded at the MobileBooth in Kansas City. Jannise Stallard brought her cousin Nila Cleaves. Here, Nila talks about her earliest memory: the day she met her father when he returned home from World War II.

Storycorps in Kansas City is sponsored by the William T. Kemper Foundation, Commerce Bank, Trustee.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and powerful storytelling.
