To support three teacher institutes on "The Freedom Rights Movement in Alabama: From the 13th Amendment through the Voting Rights Act of 1965," "Humanities and Human Rights," and "The Last Great War: Teaching World War II through Art and Literature." Funding will also support the speakers bureau, the "Journey Stories" traveling exhibition, and grants.

The Alabama Humanities Foundation (AHF) proposes to use its We The People (WTP) grant to: (1) conduct three teacher institutes, (2) underwrite presentations in our speakers bureau program, which relate to American (including Alabama) history and culture; (3) partially assist our Museum on Main Street "Journey Stories" exhibition; and (4) promote our grants program with increased emphasis on WTP.
