If you happened to be walking past Wilmington’s Federal building by the Western entrance of Peter Spencer Plaza on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 7, you would have caught a glimpse of a check-presentation ceremony. We are all familiar with such a scene: a larger-than-life check that will never see the inside of a bank, smiling people, and the feel-good photo opp. And while the smiles may be obscured in these masked days of COVID-19, the goodwill is heightened. We all need a little good news, at this point in 2020, but it is more than that. Look a little closer at this scene and you will see an INtersection of everything the city of Wilmington has to offer—from corporate to non-profit, from history to culture, and from government to religion. All of this is on display on this sunny afternoon to celebrate Black lives and culture and promote social justice reform...

Literacy and math proficiency are challenges that a wide swath of students cannot overcome, despite hours a day of schooling and homework. It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes passionate individuals in the community to continue the work that guardians and teachers cannot always accomplish alone.

It is certainly no secret that the philanthropy and nonprofit sector in this country is led by white men. As a Black executive director, I consider myself fortunate, as I have been successful in this industry and have worked tirelessly to earn the respect of leaders in the sector. Despite my success, I face racism on a daily basis. I am not in this alone. Though there are few persons of color in executive positions, we agree that the lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion in a sector that is dedicated to social impact is problematic and has sustained a toxic culture of microaggressions and systemic racism...
