Enriching the lives of Marylanders and strengthening the fabric of our state since 1973. That’s Maryland Humanities. This short film from Maryland Humanities and filmmaker Joe Rubino celebrates 45 years of being the state humanities council and highlights the work of our organization.
Maryland Humanities creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities that inspire all Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities.
The Maryland Center for the Book, a program of the Maryland Humanities Council, is pleased to launch One Maryland One Book—the first-ever statewide community-centered reading program designed to encourage everyone in the state to read and discuss one common book.
This years selection—A Hope in the Unseen by Ron Suskind—is rich and multilayered. It was selected not only because it offers the opportunity to discuss important and highly relevant topics such as education and socioeconomics, but also because it presents the opportunity to talk about race and race relations in Maryland and in America—a common theme running through the Maryland Humanities Councils programming in 2008.
Here, Cedric Jennings discusses his experiences first hand in a series of interviews at Montgomery College.
