“Soul of the City helped me get my son back on track...As a result of Soul of the City, [he] is now putting more effort academically, he has become very selective of the company he keeps and he no longer takes life for granted.”

Our Mission

The Humanities Council of Washington, DC (Humanities DC) aims to celebrate the vibrant tapestry of culture in the Nation’s Capital through humanities programming and grants.

About Us

We reach over 667,000 people every year, including thousands of children, to engage them in substantive discussions surrounding community history, socio-political issues, literature, and more. We reach out to each of the eight wards to encourage residents to embrace the breadth and depth of DC’s culture and to collaborate with us to develop activities that promote diversity, dialogue, and life-long learning.
