This interview with LeBron Frazier, age 9, was recorded in Hudson, New York on July 18, 2014 at the Hudson Public library around the corner from LeBron’s home. Denita Bell, his mother, remained in the room having just finished her interview (Denita Bell interview.) He attends the John L. Edwards Elementary School.
In the very short audio file making up the interview, LeBron talked about his favorite things, his life with his mom and his dog. It is a very sweet introduction to a little boy’s world. It is hoped that follow-up interviews will happen in the future.
Mary Ellen Lennon is a history professor in Indiana who grew up in Queens, New York. A student in the Oral History Summer School, she has been moved by the stories shared by the generous and deeply thoughtful people of Hudson.
