Kristen, director of communications and development:

  • The NEH just announced a new grant opportunity for humanities programs that benefit youth, communities of color, and economically disadvantaged populations.
  • We’re excited to bring a poetry tradition back to the most famous track in the world. Have you seen our poetry contest that’s inspired by the 100th running of the Indy 500? Deadline to submit is March 21. Open to anyone, anywhere!

Leah, director of programs and community engagement:

Jacqueline Cromleigh, communications manager and program associate:

Nancy Conner, director of grants and Novel Conversations:

Eric Wiete, public history intern:

  • I had the privilege of submitting several of these oral histories as part of Wright State University’s Veterans’ Voices Project. This collection of archived oral history interviews is both a valuable resource for historians as well as a benefit to the veterans being interviewed.
