CONNECT

AHF is offering virtual versions of its long-standing public speaker series presentations, teacher professional development opportunities, and other programs. 

On June 1 at 11 a.m., our next opportunity is Cooking in Cotton Country, a new virtual Road Scholar presentation by Limestone County Archivist Rebekah Davis. From the pages of the best-selling cookbook by the Junior League of Morgan County, Rebekah takes us on a culinary journey with a pinch of history for good measure.

Stayed tuned and join us for a variety of programs over the coming weeks. Please direct questions to Programs Director Melanie Bouyer at mbouyer@alabamahumanities.org.

Other learning opportunities

AHF can offer these programs thanks to generous funding from our donors.

CONSIDER

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

“For the last couple of months, we’ve been together in staying apart. How American is that? Historian Colin Woodard believes it’s standard, that our continent and country has been a loose collection of fractious tribes or nations for centuries now…so when AHF asked if I would facilitate a five-week book discussion, I thought of our splintered responses to COVID-19 and Woodard’s American Nations was the obvious choice.” Kevin Lee, Arts Editor of Mobile’s Lagniappe and discussion leader for AHF’s upcoming Virtual Book Club, launching June 1 @ 4:00pm CT.

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.
