MORE ABOUT GIVING BACK
“A story that has not been told!” asserts noted scholar on philanthropy Claire Gaudiani about Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists. Giving Back reframes philanthropy with a vast collection of photography and stories, revealing centuries-old customs that endure throughout the African Diaspora. During slavery and its aftermath in America, communities would have perished without the generosity, innovation and sacrifices of its members—who rarely are heralded as philanthropists.
Through inquiry, interviews and images, writer Valaida Fullwood and photographer Charles Thomas engage over 200 black donors and explore such questions as: How do you define philanthropy? Juxtaposing photographs and narratives, Giving Back illuminates transcendent truths and elicits new thinking about philanthropy.
A perfect gift, Giving Back is a well of inspiration for lovers of photography, culture and humanity. Every book purchased keeps giving, since proceeds are invested in philanthropic causes—and since the stories inspire readers to give.
