Guest event posting from local hero Steven Thrasher NPR StoryCorps alumni Michael Premo and Rachel Falcone take oral history to the streets (or rather, to the cleaners) with their project "Housing is a Human Right." The series of photographs and audio interviews is on display through the weekend at the Wash and Play Lotto Laundromat, located at 81 Lafayette in Fort Greene. It's funded through a grant from the Laundromat Project, and admission is free (though doing a load of wash while you listen is always welcome.) Anyone interested in recording their own stories can call (888) 955-6653.
