We did it!

We're so excited to announce that we've received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities!  

We'll be doing great things with this money, including adding a search function, transcripts, and commentary by humanities scholars to our website; developing a podcast to launch next year; creating curriculum; and continuing to facilitate reuse of our content in schools, theaters, on the air, at local events, and more.

Thanks to all of our backers for your support of our project.  If our Kickstarter hadn't been successful, we'd never have had the opportunity to apply for the NEH grant.  You saw something good in our work and it really paid off.  

All the best from the STRA team!

PS: Here's the NEH press release.
