The Humanities Council of Washington, DC has extended its deadline for the “Who’s a Washingtonian?” Grant program to September 5th. Eight $5,000 grants are available for programs that can unite different D.C. demographics on a humanities project and can encourage unique dialogue between communities. Proposals are being accepted from federally-approved 501(c)(3) organizations, however individuals or organizations may also work with fiscal agents to apply for grants. Full grant details are here. 

Here’s what one recent Who’s a Washingtonian? Grantee said, “Thanks to support from DC Humanities Council, Center for Inspired Teaching hosted a town hall in honor of the 20th anniversary of the publication of the book, Dream City: Race, Power, and the Decline of Washington, DC. I was very gratified to see over 100 students, teachers, and members of the community in attendance. It was exciting to see… a common understanding in the room that we, the participants, share the same city, and that city deserves good stewardship; in addition, this event reminded me of the power of a community dialogue,” saidCosby Hunt, manager of teaching & learning at Center for Inspired Teaching. 
Applicants are encouraged to review the grant webinar prior to applying:

Notifications will be sent October 16 with the grant cycle lasting from November 1, 2014 to October 31, 2015. To apply for this opportunity, access the Grant Application Portal at http://grantapplication.wdchumanities.org/

DC Teens Remix Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?” and Narrate Digital Humanities Project Inspired by Music Legend’s Life

Soul of the City Narrates What’s Going On in Washington, D.C. with a recording of “What’s Going On-2014” and a Digital Humanities Project inspired by Marvin Gaye.

Entire project at whatsgoingondc.com

(Washington, DC) - Soul of the City is a youth leadership development program of the Humanities Council of Washington, D.C., that uses the city of Washington and its unique neighborhoods and culture as a classroom. As a part of the city’s Summer Employment Youth Program based at the Department of Human Services, sixteen young people developed a digital humanities project. This year marks what would have been the 75th Birthday of Washington, D.C. native Marvin Gaye. It was his life, music and politics that served as a textbook and lens to understanding their city this past summer.

The youth employees researched Washington and the Nation’s history through Gaye’s seminal 1971 album, “What’s Going On?” Through this understanding and inspiration, the youth wrote and recorded their own version of the classic title track, What’s Going On – 2014. “The song artfully and authentically highlights the challenges and the hopes DC’s youth.” said, Michael L. Chambers, II, programs and marketing manager, who developed and directed the “What’s Going On?” program concept. Grammy-nominated artist Kokayi produced the song and it was recorded at WHUR 96.3 FM studios on Howard University’s campus.

Team members also narrated tours of different neighborhoods that Marvin once called home and institutions that shaped the singer, recorded podcasts about current-day issues that shape their own communities, as well as designed community surveys to gather data from elders about what life was like in 1971.The group’s work can be found at whatsgoingoingondc.com

””It was a real privilege to see Marvin Gaye’s hometown through the eyes of a new generation of Washingtonians,” said Natalie Hopkinson, who was the lead scholar on the project. “From coping with violence to finding love, a lot hasn’t changed since the original What’s Going On? But today’s D.C. youth also grapple with everything from technology overload to gentrification to navigating our schools. I am grateful that the Humanities Council provided a platform for this extraordinary group of young people to engage with the cultural geography and history of our city—and to lift their voices for posterity.” 

On Sunday, August 3, 2014, Soul of the City premiered the song and project at the first Humanities, Arts and Technology Festival at St. Elizabeths East. The youth shared their experiences, participated in a Q&A session and debuted their 2014 edition of “What’s Going On.” The “What’s Going On” edition of Soul of the City was led by Author and Scholar Natalie Hopkinson and our Programs and Marketing Manager, Michael L. Chambers, II

About Soul of the City

The Humanities Council of Washington, DC has presented Soul of the City for almost a decade to hundreds of young people. It emphasizes one of the Council’s core beliefs that effective leadership can be cultivated through a curriculum that combines humanities concepts with skill building. SOTC encourages young people to view their city, their country and their world in new ways and prepares them for leadership. During the summer of 2014, there were two Soul of the City programs, one based at the Department of Human Services and the other at Gateway DC on the St. Elizabeths East Campus. The youth based at Gateway DC researched the culture and developed oral history projects, including walking tours, of the Congress Heights neighborhood.
