August is Black Philanthropy Month (BPM).  The BPM movement strives to encourage and mobilize people of African-American and African heritage to get informed, involved, inspired and invested in giving back to our communities. The movement is recognized in 20 U.S. cities. The BPM theme for 2017 is Giving Voice to Fuel Change.
For Black Philanthropy Month 2017, I am giving voice to African-Americans leading the charge in giving back and facilitating philanthropy in Black communities and in the greater society.
Click on one of the interview links below to hear Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson, the founder of Black Philanthropy Month, offer an impassioned and well-studied perspective of philanthropy during our conversation. This interview and others like it will be aired on Wednesdays at 4:00PM CST on SSW Radio 88.5FM  through the end of August.
