The Alabama Humanities Foundation is now the Alabama Humanities Alliance

We celebrate thinking. We encourage inquiry. We live for surprising discoveries. We exist to join together those who hunger for knowledge and create a sense of belonging among those who desire to learn. And now our name reflects that bond. We are more than an organization—we are an alliance of thinkers. We are AHA.
