Black Lives Matter in Delaware

June 10, 2020

The killing of George Floyd has brought attention once again to systemic racial inequalities in America, and a lot has already been said. Rather than reiterate what so many in the Black community have been saying for generations, Delaware Humanities would instead like to place a spotlight on those voices in our state.

There is never a better time to listen to those most affected by the ongoing atrocity of racism and injustice. The humanities help us to understand what it means to be human. With such a wide array of human experiences across cultures and communities, the only way to truly understand is to engage in the learning process both actively and reflectively.

Here on our website you will find just a few of the resources available for self-education, community involvement, and promoting racial justice and equality in the state of Delaware. For those who have not previously been informed, we implore you to learn. For those more informed than ourselves, we invite you to correct us where we may make mistakes, expand where we may fall short, and call on us where we may help.
