Missouri is commemorating 200 years of statehood this year! What comes to mind when you think of Missouri? What has living here meant in your life? What do you hope for future Missourians? We’re asking Missouri residents these and other questions at several festivals and events this summer and recording oral stories at the Missouri on Mic audio booth at the Missouri State Fair, daily, 10-noon. KBIA News listeners will have a chance to hear some of these Missouri on Mic stories this fall. The collection of stories will be archived at the State Historical Society of Missouri as part of Missouri’s 200th anniversary of Statehood.
