In this week's installment of the StoryCorps Griot Initiative, 100-year old retiree Arthur Winston tells his great-grand nephew, Eric Anthony Givens, about his 70-year career, working as a bus mechanic in Los Angeles.

Arthur Winston died shortly after this interview was recorded. A Los Angeles bus terminal now bears his name.

The StoryCorps Griot is currently collecting stories in Holly Springs, Miss. 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.

This week's segment was produced by Katie Simon. Senior Producer for StoryCorps is Michael Garofalo.
