Keith Spiro Interviews Robin about the Foremothers Project

In this interview with Keith Spiro I speak about my inspiration for The Foremothers Project and how I started gathering Foremothers stories from other people in the community. Keith describes himself as a business strategist and community builder. But in truth, he is so much more–a wonderful photographer, creative spirit, family man, and dear friend. In our conversation, Keith gives me a chance to talk about what motivates me as an artist and what I hope to open up in others through The Foremothers Project.

Robin was interviewed by Keith Spiro on his Communicast Podcast to talk about the Foremothers Project.

I published this blog originally in 2021 and since then the Foremothers Project has grown and expanded with new work and perspectives. So I am republishing this post with the wonderful interview by Keith Spiro. .

Many of the stories I have published, like my story about Aunt Fannie and the story from Christine Higgins are about Foremothers who immigrated to this country for a better life.
