A More Perfect Union podcast: Culture and Community
This week – we bring you episode 2 of the Delaware Humanities’ podcast: A More Perfect Union.
The podcast explores the concept of “identity” in Delaware - and this second episode focuses on culture and community
A recent U.S. News and World Report analysis ranked Delaware 14th among the states for equality among genders and racial groups. And while Delaware is making strides, few would argue that systemic racism and discrimination against underrepresented groups has been eliminated.
To discuss how that’s created barriers for some and how to eliminate them, we are joined by Julissa Coriano and her son Noah Duckett of Orgullo Delaware, an organization that provides resources to LGBTQ+ Latinx individuals and families. Both are clinical social workers and Coriano is a sexuality therapist.
We are also joined Alison Parker, chair of University of Delaware history department and co-chair of the university’s anti-racism initiative
The podcast is brought to you by Delaware Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Its mission is to strengthen communities by encouraging all Delawareans to be inspired, informed, and engaged through exploring the diversity of human experience.
We thank The National Endowment for the Humanities for its support as part of its A More Perfect Union initiative - designed to demonstrate and enhance the critical role the humanities play in our nation, while supporting projects commemorating the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026.
The A More Perfect Union podcast is produced by Delaware Public Media.
