Event Details

Humanitini

A recent Smithsonian symposium and a flurry of Washington Post articles have reignited the debate over the Washington Redskins historic name and logo. Is it tradition or is it racism? No matter which point of view you support, join in on the discussion by engaging a panel of experts as we discuss the issue at this lively and enlightening mixer.  

The Spring 2013 Humanitini series will be held at 876 Cafe. We'll start chatting around 6:30, but come early to grab a seat, a drink, and some appetizers (10% of the evening's proceeds go to support the Humanities Council)!

Metro:  Van Ness-UDC Metro Station ( Red Line)


Humanitini, the Council's happy-hour think and drink, adds a cerebral element to the typical after-work social scene! Grab a Humanitini (yep, it's a real drink) and some friends, and come talk with us!

Organizer

Humanities Council of Washington, DC

The Humanities Council of Washington, DC (HCWDC) is a non-profit organization that provides grant support for community projects that enrich the lives of DC residents through the humanities disciplines. Additionally, HCWDC produces humanities programs, such as Soul of the City andLive to Read, with support from area non-profits, the NEH, and the DC government. The organization was founded in1980 as a private affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and is one of 56 similar institutionslocated in each U.S. state and territory.

 

HCWDC is governed by a 25 person board of directors, 5 of whom are appointed by the mayor. Working in conjunction with the Council’s small staff, these community leaders are dedicated to creating an environment, in all DC wards and neighborhoods, where residents can participate in open conversations about the humanities and how they reflect contemporary issues and challenges.

 

Though the HCWDC receives funding from the NEH, it relies heavily on generous support from donorspassionate about promoting the instructive and enriching influence of the humanities in the District of Columbia.
