The Tale of Miss Lizzie Devine

StoryCorps' latest animated short features two cousins talking about their one-of-a-kind Sunday-school teacher.


StoryCorps, a nonprofit organization that collects and archives recorded interviews with Americans from all walks of life, is a treasure trove of amazing tales. On occasion, StoryCorps animates the stories, and the latest one features cousins Cherie Johnson and James Ransom reminiscing about their inimitable Sunday-school teacher in Brandenton, Fla.: Miss Lizzie Devine.

Check out next week for a series of animated shorts commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
