About the Programs

The Dean B. Ellis Library at Arkansas State University is one of 30 libraries that has received a $2,500 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to present different outreach programs in connection with an upcoming documentary, “Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers’ Project.”

The Library is working in collaboration with the Craighead Country Jonesboro Public Library to bring quality humanities and historical programming to as wide of an audience as possible.  Dr. Cherisse Jones-Branch, Associate Professor of History, is our project scholar.

Events at both libraries are free and open to the public.
