We cannot understand our present moment without recognizing the
lasting damage caused by a history of policies that have placed Black and White
people into two separate worlds.
During Black Philanthropy Month, the Black Philanthropy Initiative
invites you to join a series of conversations every Wednesday in August called FORESIGHT
20/20 - Eyes on Social Justice.
Each session is unique and
builds upon the knowledge shared in the previous session. We strongly encourage
that you attend all four sessions.
