Lectures co-sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council and the Marco Island Historical Society
Mission: The Florida Humanities Council is dedicated to building strong communities and informed citizens by providing Floridians with the opportunity to explore the heritage, traditions and stories of our state and its place in the world.
Established in 1973, we are an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. We develop and fund public programs and resources around the state that explore Florida’s history and cultural heritage, literary and artistic life, environment and development, issues and ideas, communities and traditions.
