Delaware Humanities provides educational outreach, special projects, and funding opportunities to bring Delawareans together.

Spencer, Associate Professor, Department of History at Lehman College, City University of New York, will speak on her book, The Revolution Has Come: Black Power, Gender, and the Black Panther Party in Oakland (Duke University Press, 2016).
