Financing Our Work: Can We Learn From the Past and Construct A New Normal?

Thursday, August 20th at 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EST

Justice is not cheap. There has always been a cost put on the freedom of Black people. We have been innovative in financing our freedom. But with few exceptions, we are still subject to forces outside ourselves to support the structures we build. What can we learn from our Black funding/financial institutions that have succeeded and those that were not sustainable? How can we build financial independence into philanthropy models that support Black communities?
