How Communities Build Opportunity | James & Deborah Fallows

Back to Archive

We’re excited to welcome you to our Building Opportunity in Delaware podcast!

How can we build opportunity and strengthen community for all? Over the next eight weeks, DCF President & CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay talks with Delawareans who are building opportunity through the arts, faith communities, libraries and everything in between.

Our first episode features James & Deborah Fallows, authors of Our Towns: A 100, 000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America. The Fallows joined us in November as the guest speakers for the DCF’s 2019 Building Opportunity Keynote, when they also had a chance to visit Wilmington revitalization projects downtown, on the West Side, and in Riverside. They later featured the Our Lens Challenge, a photo contest for Delaware high school students hosted by the DCF and community partners, in an article for The Atlantic.
