Ajax in Rhode Island is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of NEH’s “Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War” special initiative, which supports veterans-related programming within each state and encourages a national network of humanities programming for America’s military, veterans, and their communities.
