Description

The contributions of Delaware’s African American community will soon take center stage. This summer, the Delaware Historical Society will open its doors to the new Center for African-American Heritage in downtown Wilmington. The Center, which has been in the making for several years, was made possible thanks in part to a grant by the city of Wilmington and other contributions. Despite some early hurdles, the Delaware Historical Society and African American Community leaders worked together to push this project forward.
