The Federation of State Humanities Councils has awarded Alabama Humanities Foundation with a $30,000 grant as part of a continuing series of programs across the country focusing on the role of journalism and the humanities in a democratic society.
It marks the second time AHF has earned this grant, a national initiative/partnership between the Mellon Foundation and the Federation.
AHF will provide humanities-based training for youth and adult community members interested in exploring the practice of solutions journalism in rural Alabama places. While providing solutions journalism training, the workshop will address the humanities’ traditional role in the training of journalists and in the development over time of the field of journalism.
Alabama Humanities Foundation mission is to foster learning, understanding and appreciation of our people, communities and cultures. As an independent nonprofit partner with the National Endowment for the Humanities, the AHF supports and offers programs that will enhance the minds and enrich the lives of Alabamians.
