Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited, Pop-Up, Abridged Edition

“So while our book serves as a moving tribute, the exhibit along with the programming and discussions it inspires are meant to compel us toward a triumphant movement of conscious giving for social change.”

— Valaida Fullwood and Charles W. Thomas, Jr., Co-Creators of the Pop-Up, Abridged Edition of The Soul of Philanthropy

Groundbreaking in focus and depth, Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited presents powerful stories of generosity among Americans of African descent. A new traveling version, called the Pop-Up, Abridged Edition, features twenty black-and-white photographs and narratives that provide insight to centuries-old cultural customs and beliefs about giving and generosity that — though rarely referred to as “philanthropy” in Black communities — have long been an integral and transformational force in lives and communities throughout American society.

Like the comprehensive exhibit, the Pop-Up, Abridged Edition draws evocative content from the award-winning book Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists, by Valaida Fullwood and photographer Charles W. Thomas Jr. Pop-up exhibitions are the latest innovation of The Giving Back Project, which explores Black giving practices and reframes portraits of philanthropy.
