StoryCorps Shorts: Detective Simmons
Special | 2m 59s
Every family has a figure who captures the imagination of future generations of storytellers. For Camaran Henson, that figure is his grandfather, a former police detective he was convinced was immortal, like a superhero. Though his grandfather didn’t prove to be immortal, Camaran still considers him worthy of his legendary status--and a deserving focal point of continued storytelling.
