As we experience an unprecedented period of isolation, Delaware Humanities has been impressed and inspired by the way communities and organizations are coming together to share and create resources. Below we have gathered a two lists — one of educational resources for kids (and their adults!) who are learning now at home, and the other for anyone who may need a little bit of connection right now.

Shutting Down COVID-19 Misinformation
Black Lives Matter in DelawareJune 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….
Delaware Humanities COVID-19 MessageMarch 16, 2020
Delaware Humanities believes that public health and safety are top priorities.
With the growing prevalence of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, in Delaware, we are monitoring on a daily basis both federal and state guidance on how to minimize exposure to and spread of the virus. The health and peace of mind of our staff, board, partners, grantees, and program participants will guide our decision-making in the coming weeks.
We will post updates on our website. We will also keep our calendar up to date. We recommend that you periodically visit us here at our website and on our calendar of events for the latest information on the status of program and grant-supported events.
