We, as a society of peoples, need self-reflection as a form of finding ourselves. The humanities showcase our artistic and cultural richness, while creating understandings of our diverse heritage. As Washingtonians’ lives become more complex and society spends less time in reflection, we need to bring our diverse people together in harmony through exploration of the past, culture, race, and religion. There is no better way to experience life than through the humanities.
