AHF is offering weekly links – to materials from literature, history and poetry – for comfort and perspective during the Covid-19 experience. 

As our nation mourns the passing of Congressman John Lewis, Alabama also mourns the loss of a native son. He decided as a young adult to live out his faith by getting into “good trouble,” putting his life on the line to demonstrate against injustice. Consider his life story via free streaming access to GET IN THE WAY (2017), a PBS documentary made possible in part by an AHF media grant.

Further reflection:

In times of grief, loss and anxiety, what brings you solace?

AHF can offer these resources thanks to the good work of our many colleagues and partners in the humanities.
