An FHC seminar in St. Augustine offers a colonial experience other than Jamestown or Plymouth. Historian Dr. Michael Gannon talks about the importance of teachers in Florida and the need for a more extensive coverage of Florida history. Dr. James Cusick talks about the difficulty of covering such a long, rich history.
Historian Tracy Revels, author of Grander in Her Daughters: Florida’s Women During the Civil War, and Dr. James Denham of Florida Southern University talk about the lives of Florida women during the Civil War.
Brevard Cultural Alliance's mission is to build and sustain a dynamic and vibrant arts and cultural sector integral to Brevard County's quality of life.
With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, FHC grants primarily respond to the needs of local communities, but they often address topics of statewide interest. FHC is particularly interested in projects that are collaborative, attract diverse audiences, encourage active participation from the public, and explore humanities topics and disciplines in interesting and engaging ways.
This project is sponsored in part by The Jessie Ball duPont Fund.
