From the StoryCorps archives: The Saffo family comes to America

Jun 24, 2013

Just over two years ago, the StoryCorps mobile soundbooth came to Wilmington and recorded rich stories of family, heritage, and personal struggle. WHQR News is thrilled to bring this wonderful catalog of Wilmington back for a second look.

In today's story, Mayor Bill Saffo speaks with his parents. Bill’s mother, Despina, or Des for short, recounts her arrival to New York City from the small Greek island of Ikaria when she was child.
