By Stuart Comstock-Gay and Paul Herdman

Inspired by Black History Month and our unwavering desire to address structural and systemic racism in Delaware and beyond, the Delaware Community Foundation and Rodel are proud to sponsor the Black Voices for Black Justice Fund.

This initiative aims to highlight black voices in our community. Through nominations, the program provides strong, imaginative Black leaders with a financial award to use their voice and solutions for building a fair, equitable, and anti-racist America that better reflects the best of humanity.

Through this partnership, a person from Delaware will be selected as a leader.

Wes Moore, the bestselling author of Five Days: The Fiery Reckoning of an American City, co-chairs the fund. Moore spoke to the DCF and our friends during a 2020 “Building Opportunity” keynote.
