Engaging minds and connecting communities is a mission shared by New Hampshire Humanities and our partners at New Hampshire PBS (NHPBS). Since 1959, NHPBS has provided Granite Staters (and beyond) with the best of PBS and award-winning local programs and is the only statewide, locally owned and operated PBS member station.
NHPBS inspires one million Granite Staters each month with dynamic and trusted local and national programs on-air, online, via mobile, in classrooms, and in communities. NHPBS provides over 200,000 free, curriculum-aligned educational services, while hundreds of thousands of online visitors access information and interactive content. Engaging audiences and often working with partners (such as New Hampshire Humanities), NHPBS creates programs and events to spark meaningful dialogue and connection throughout the Granite State.
In 2017 we collaborated with NHPBS on a series of film screenings and community conversations based on Ken Burns’ landmark documentary, The Vietnam War, at five of the state’s most vibrant cultural venues. Our current collaboration includes a film screening and community discussion preceding the February premier of The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song, exploring the 400-year-old story of the black church in America, the changing nature of worship spaces, and the men and women who shepherded them from the pulpit, the choir loft, and church pews.
