Next week, the State of Delaware joins the Delaware Heritage Commission to launch a series of forums on Black history in the First State.
The first of these virtual events focuses on this month’s celebration of Juneteenth, as well as other topics.
And one of the panelists - Dr. Reba Hollingsworth from the Heritage Commission – joins us to discuss the forums and teaching Black History.
Two weeks ago, we looked at some charter schools expanding to meet the demands they are seeing.
This week, we look at one - Great Oaks – that’s looking to shrink in coming years to address issues it's having.
Contributor Larry Nagengast looks at their plans for the future.
A service dog training program in Maine State Prison is the setting for a new book from author and former Marine Craig Grossi.
Grossi’s second book is called Second Chances: A Marine, His Dog, and Finding Redemption.
In this week’s Arts Playlist, Grossi chats with Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele about his latest work.
A few years ago, we brought you a story on a tool to help fishers avoid accidentally catching the endangered Atlantic sturgeon.
This week, we have an update on the locally developed technology.
Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt talks with University of Delaware postdoctoral researcher Matthew Breece and UD College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment professor Matthew Oliver about how the tool is used—and how it’s evolved since it was first released.
