Maryland Humanities is pleased to award $4,000 in mini grant funding to four Maryland organizations: Coppin State University Development Foundation, Forest Woods Media Productions, Prince George’s Community College Foundation, and Urban Rural Action. The grantees are located in Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Prince George’s County, and Washington County, respectively. Funded projects include a public radio show featuring Maryland poets, virtual classes about Black women’s journey for voting rights, and more.

Mini grants provide support of up to $1,200 per recipient. Nonprofit organizations that use the humanities—literature, philosophy, history, and other disciplines—to inspire Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities are eligible to apply. Grant criteria encourage free public programming in many forms. The next mini grant round application deadline is November 1, 2020.

The Poet and the Poem is an ongoing series that has been on public radio since 1977—founded, produced, and hosted by Maryland Poet Laureate, Grace Cavalieri. Each show presents a Maryland poet reading their work followed by conversation that parses and analyzes the writing process. Fifteen programs will be featured on the Maryland State Arts Council website, as well as on iTunes and public radio as a series in January 2021.

Prince George’s Community College Foundation

Black Culture Matters Series

Prince George’s County

Grant Award: $1,000

Four Fall Community Lectures will offer historical and cultural context for a given topic, inviting the community to think about ways expanded historical knowledge might inform the racially charged present moment. Lecture topics include Celebrating While Black: From Juneteenth to Black August; Black Hair-itage, History & Healing; Writing Freedom: Black Literature and Racial Justice; and Media, Music, and Memory.  A Spring Symposium will serve as a critical rejoinder to the fall events.

This program is a collaboration among Urban Rural Action, Towson University’s Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility office, and the Washington County Chamber of Commerce. To date, a cohort of 25 Maryland residents from Baltimore, Silver Spring, Frederick, and Hagerstown have formed three teams based on their desire to work on the issues of systemic racism, economic recovery, and education. Project teams will design concrete plans to address each challenge within and/or across urban and rural communities in Maryland.
