Radio Rookies: The 9/11 Generation Speaks

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Radio Rookies partnered with the 9/11 Memorial and Museum to mark the 10th anniversary of September 11 by sharing the stories of six young people from New York City, New Jersey and Long Island who are part of the last generation of young people who remember 9/11 as a lived experience, rather than a historic event. Their stories give voice to grief, pain, and loss, but also resilience, altruism and courage.
