"The healthiest communities are those that are built around active libraries, museums, and other cultural centers, that have a strong sense of their own history and identity, that have good quality schools, along with mechanisms for involving their residents in the process of solving problems and planning for the future. Supporting these kinds of communities is what the state humanities councils are all about." - Esther Mackintosh, FSHC President, at a White House briefing

ln Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Nobel Peace Prize speech “The Quest for Peace and Justice,” he describes how the exciting innovations in STEM cannot be fully understood without the humanities.
