"Stories are the way we human beings organize our thoughts, our questions, our memories; and language is our best medium for telling stories. Without the humanities—literature and history and philosophy and all the other disciplines within the liberal arts—we would have no way of sharing those stories, of making connections between our lives and the lives of others."
The East Nashville Hope Exchange kicked off its summer program, "My Family, My Community, My World," last week, and forty-two children are knee deep in books, art, and FUN! The program is funded in part through a grant from Humanities Tennessee.
