Telling Our Stories For Good

Along with Charles and members of New Generation of African American Philanthropists, I am so appreciative of recent media coverage about the release of Giving Back. Media have helped generate a buzz around the book, prompting broad interest and brisk early sales.

Tracey Webb, creator of the popular blog and founder of The Black Benefactors giving circle, deserves an extra special thanks. Her blog posts about Giving Back…found here and herehave helped us reach national audiences and connect with kindred spirits who are building on the traditions of Black philanthropy.

“There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you.” — Zora Neale Hurston

Zora’s statement rings excruciatingly true with me. Giving Back contains a vast collection of stories—photographic imagery and narrative form—I ached to tell. And I’m grateful for the media stories that are sharing news of our book of stories about good people doing good.
