Canceled: Madam C.J. Walker's Gospel of Giving: Black Women's Philanthropy During Jim Crow - NNGO Research Colloquium Series

African Americans give at least $11 billion to nonprofits each year. Despite the toll that four centuries of slavery and discrimination have taken on black earnings, African Americans regardless of their economic status, have long given generously of their money and time.

Tyrone McKinley Freeman, Ph.D. from the Lilly School of Philanthropy at Indiana University is the guest speaker for this session. Dr. Freeman will discuss his forthcoming book entitled, Madam C.J. Walker’s Gospel of Giving: Black Women’s Philanthropy during Jim Crow. Madam Walker was an African American female entrepreneur who built an international beauty culture company that employed thousands of people, primarily black women.
