StoryCorps: Nicole Parker & Kiplyn Primus
A troubled relationship with her mother led Nicole Parker to run away from home to attend college. Although her tuition was paid for by an ROTC scholarship, she knew she could never go back home. In the StoryCorps booth, Nicole told her friend Kiplyn Primus about the challenges that presented once the holidays rolled around.
This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
