In this week's StoryCorps Griot Initiative, Rebia Mixon-Clay remembers her first husband, Frank Mixon.
She went to a booth in Chicago to talk about the man whom she calls her "first true love."
The StoryCorps Griot Booth is currently in Oakland, Calif.
All the Griot Initiative recordings are archived at the Library of Congress. A copy of each interview will also go to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
