September Council Program Snapshot 

In September, the state and jurisdictional humanities councils are hosting nearly 200 programs that address histories of racism, social injustice, racial biases, women’s suffrage and the right to vote, civic engagement, democracy and journalism, history, and more. Each council created or adapted their programming into virtual experiences due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The programs range from lectures to workshops and online exhibits to virtual book clubs.

Check out what’s happening virtually across the country as you read through the programs listed below. Connect and engage in conversations about these programs on social media using #humanitiesconnect. Feel free to submit programs by emailing us at connect@statehumanities.org.
