The Tennessee Arts Commission, in partnership with Humanities Tennessee, is proud to present Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest. This program for high school students seeks to foster the next generation of readers by capitalizing on the latest trends in poetry recitation and performance and building on the resurgence of poetry as an oral art form. Encourage your local high school to participate!
Humanities Tennessee will be working with various groups around the state to coordinate new programs to engage Tennessee's veterans in questions about our roles and responsibilities in service to each other and our nation.
A public conversation, facilitated by Vanderbilt University's Daniel Sharfstein and centered on questions of slavery and citizenship in the first century of American statehood, will be held Oct. 2nd in Charlotte, TN.
