Grantees Will Display New Contributions to Local History and CultureIn June, the Humanities Council awarded 18 DC Community Heritage Project grants to an outstanding group of organizations which worked throughout the Summer to produce a diverse collection of projects that document the history and culture of Washington, DC's neighborhoods and landmarks. The groups produced brochures, oral histories, documentary films, exhibits, and other materials and are now distributing them to the public. Each will be cataloged and digitized for the Humanities Council's DC Digital Museum, but hard copies of many of the projects will be available throughout the city.
