The New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) will host its 50th Anniversary celebration on September 29, 2022, at Morven Museum and Garden in Princeton.

The event will begin at 6 p.m. and include the presentation of the inaugural Stanley N. Katz Prize for Excellence in the Public Humanities.

The National Endowment for the Humanities and state humanities councils were formed to democratize knowledge and to share the joy of the humanities widely. The NJCH applies this notion as central to its founding in 1972.
