What Comes to Light discussion series slated for fall

A “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” discussion series is scheduled this fall in Rainsville/Ft. Payne, Thomasville and Talladega.

WHAT COMES TO LIGHT: ALABAMA JOURNALISTS AND AN INFORMED CITIZENRY is a series of public forums devoted to provoking deliberation and discussion of the role of journalism in a democracy and contributions of the humanities to an informed Alabama citizenry.

In partnership with Alabama journalism/communications scholars, local papers and community groups, and practicing journalists, including Pulitzer Prize winners, AHF will hold public forums and discussions in three Alabama locations in Fall 2018:

  • September 26 * Rainsville/Ft. Payne
  • October 23 * Thomasville
  • October 30 * Talladega

This series is part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” initiative, administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils.  The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.

We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
