[Philanthropy Reframed]: One Year Later

In observance of Black Philanthropy Month 2013, we’re revisiting the video Philanthropy Reframed, a 2.5 minute video trailer released in August 2012 for the Giving Back Project and its centerpiece publication, the 400-page hardcover award winning book Giving Back:  A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists.

The Giving Back Project is a civic engagement campaign organized by the New Generation of African American Philanthropists giving circle that is comprised of artful stories and photography that reframe portraits of philanthropy.  The projects publications, multimedia presentations and interactive community forums lift up inspiring stories of everyday givers and serve to reclaim the root meaning of philanthropy, love of humanity.

To date, the authors of Giving Back, Valaida Fullwood and Charles Thomas Jr., have reframed portraits of philanthropy by participating in over 50 book signings and conversations in 20 cities and 11 states, and have shared stories from the book this year at events such as TEDxCharlotte, BlackGivesBack’s inaugural event for Black History Month and the Harvey  B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture.
