The Ohio Humanities Speakers Bureau has officially opened and is now accepting speaker requests. We are excited to introduce a collection of new speakers and talks that highlight core themes to explore in 2020–suffrage, civil rights, and the May 4th Kent State shooting. Next year will mark significant anniversaries of events that changed the course of history; we hope you will join us in conversations that pursue new understanding of their lasting relevance.

Please take the time to visit the Speakers Bureau page of our website to browse through our full list of speakers and topics. If you have any questions, please call Program Coordinator Sam Chase at 614.461.7802 or email at
