Lauranett Lee was raised in Chesterfield and was inspired to study history by a professor at Virginia State University.

Recently, Lauranett sat down with Elliot Majerczyk in our radio studio to talk about her love for history and the importance of the humanities.

I just fell in love with [VFH] because of the passion the people have to bring the humanities to a wider public.

The humanities are so important in our society because they help us not only see who we are, but why places matter, what history means to us individually, in community and in the public realm.

The humanities broaden our perspective on life and give us an opportunity to reach beyond what we see and consider the unseen.

The humanities are a way to experience life more fully.
