Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists at YWCA Central Carolinas.
In January, Valaida Fullwood presented her coffee table book Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African
American Philanthropists at YWCA. This interactive session explored Fullwood’s research behind the book and highlighted the work of photographer Charles W. Thomas, Jr. Fullwood’s interviews with Charlotte
philanthropists formed the basis for the book.
In addition, YWCA hosted a multigenerational panel discussion that focused on how inclusive, responsive
philanthropy can have a positive impact on issues of racial justice. The panel included: Olivia Stinson, freshman at
Winston-Salem State University and founder of PEN Pals Book Club; Rashad Davis, entrepreneur and founding member of the New Generation of African American Philanthropists giving circle; Rob Harrington, attorney with Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson, PA., and civic leader; and Jeanne Brayboy, retired educator, arts patron and civic leader.
