In a world with Facebook, Twitter, 24/7 news channels, talk radio, citizen journalism, fake news, real news, audiences are drowning in an overwhelming overload of information.  Clearly a guidepost is needed to identify what is a trustworthy and a reliable source of news and information.

Delaware Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has created a podcast– "A Matter of Facts" – to delve into this topic as part of its mission is to engage, educate, and inspire all Delawareans through cultural programming.

Delaware State University hosted a public screening of a new documentary about the school’s history this week.  “Delaware State University: A Legacy of Opportunity” is a film about the beginnings of the only Historically Black College in the First State.

For this month’s History Matters, produced in conjunction with the Delaware Historical Society,  Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino sat down with Delaware Humanities Executive Director Marilyn Whittington, who helped get the project off the ground.
