SueEllen M. Kroll (Project Director: May 2008 to June 2011)

the Rhode Island Humanities Council's public radio program, Action Speaks, as it is enhanced, retooled, and marketed to a larger--possibly national--audience.

Rhode Island Council for the Humanities seeks funds to expand our community discussion forum and radio program ACTION SPEAKS: UNDERAPPRECIATED DAYS THAT CHANGED AMERICA. Expansion plans are three-fold: 1) increase number of programs offered; 2) launch targeted communications effort with particular focus on new radio and internet markets; and 3) enhance existing website to incorporate Web 2.0 functionality (audio & video).
