Celebrating Michigan’s Diverse Community Heritage

The Michigan Humanities Council (MHC), the state partner of the National Endowment the Humanities, fostered a more inclusive understanding of the state’s history and appreciation for community diversity through its Heritage Grants Program (HGP). From 2015–2017, MHC funded 54 documentaries, exhibitions, oral history projects, exhibitions, community dialogues, and other programs that told the stories of historically-underrepresented communities throughout the state. Each project was required to have a digital component, which MHC is preserving and sharing through a digital portal.

“This project has made me rediscover my roots, and has given me cause to take pride in my own accomplishments…I am proud to call myself Mexican American and can tell my children and grandchildren to be proud of who they are too.”
