Grant will Sustain Humanities & Arts Film Series

Dr. Kevin Henderson, assistant dean of the College of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences, has again partnered with Mike Stevens, executive director of the Moxie Cinema, to write and secure a grant from the Missouri Humanities Council. This grant and its matching funds will sustain Drury's Humanities and Arts film series for its fifth season in downtown Springfield. The series, directed by Dr. Henderson, combines screenings of classic, foreign and independent movies with post-film humanities discussions led by Drury faculty members. Several hundred Drury students, alumni and community members have attended these Saturday events in recent years. The 2016-2017 schedule includes three films in the fall and three films in the spring.
