Description: The narrative of Black philanthropy has largely been untold, under sold and buried for the last century. We have a history of collective giving. From slavery to Jim Crow to civil rights to the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements today, we have always come together to pool our money and share our resources to fight for social, economic, and political justice. Join me in hearing about the unsung heroes of Black philanthropy in our city, the region and country.
