Black Philanthropy: Embracing The New Diversity

Jacqueline Copeland-Carson explores how current understandings of black philanthropy have focused on the African-American experience and have failed to take into account those of the newest influx of black from Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The author proposes a new conception of black philanthropy that draws strength from the diversity of experience within the community: ‘Recapturing the roots of our giving traditions through inclusion of the contemporary diversity of all people of African descent in America can help revitalize and strengthen black philanthropy for all.’
