American Pilgrimage Project

The American Pilgrimage Project invites Americans of diverse backgrounds to sit together and talk to each other one-to-one about the role their religious beliefs have played at crucial moments in their lives. The conversations are recorded by StoryCorps, the award-winning nonprofit; shared through the Berkley Center’s website and social media; and archived at the Library of Congress. Over seven years, the American Pilgrimage Project has hosted conversations in 16 locations and gathered over 200 stories, reflecting a broad range of religious experience.
