In 2011, Lewis and Clark Community College received one of the first six NEH challenge grants to be awarded to a two-year institution. The $200,000 grant, which has since raised more than $1.5 million in additional funding, helped the college build the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities and fostered a long-term partnership with Jackson, who grew up in the area. In the historically-segregated Lincoln School, which Jackson purchased and donated to the College, the Humanities Center hosts humanities-based readings, lectures, dialogues, and other programs that promote empathy, understanding, and respect.
