In honor of StoryCorps founder Dave Isay’s visit to Dayton, we’re re-broadcasting some of our favorite Miami Valley StoryCorps interviews, recorded in 2010.
Mary Morgan was the first woman to run for Dayton City Commission in 1969. She went to the StoryCorps booth with her long-time friend Joy Schwab, a librarian from Beavercreek, to talk about what led her to run for office. Morgan describes herself as an "Appalachian migrant anti-racist feminist."
