The Delaneys Edit

The Delaneys are a tremendously successful African-American couple who are Owners of Desmond and another unnamed Marketplace slave. He's a surgeon at Johns Hopkins; she is Alpha Kappa Alpha and a businesswoman actively involved in the Urban League and the local Black History Museum. The Delaneys live in the Guilford neighborhood in Baltimore and own a condo at Bethany Beach.
At time of The Reunion, The Delaneys are starting divorce proceedings (she wants kids, he doesn't), and Desmond is one of the assets currently under consideration.
