StoryCorps Podcast Series

Posted on August 20, 2014

Dr. Willhelmina Perry and Ronald Moore

Every day, we encounter community leaders and organizers whose stories deserve to be shared and celebrated. The New York Foundation partnered with StoryCorps to craft an eight-part short-interview series featuring our trustees, grantees, and former grantees in conversations that get to the heart of what matters in their work.

Dr. Willhelmina Perry, Founder of LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent, talks with Ronald Moore, Co-Founder and President of LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent, about her longtime partner and the impact of her partner’s death.


Produced and recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. The interviews afford a raw encounter with the personal trials and triumphs of advocates, and an unmediated perspective on community-driven efforts in New York City.
