Featured Story

William "Bro" Adams, the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, was a guest on WAMU's "The Diane Rehm Show." During the show, Adams noted that, "We also need the humanities because we are citizens in a democracy and it is the humanities that really speak to us about the things we need to know as citizens in a democracy. Our history, our principles, our values and all of the things that are related to that."
