Editorial Reviews


"Giving Back is a joyous exultation at the power of the human spirit." 

-- Michael Solender, Charlotte ViewPoint

"An uplifting opus...a touching tribute" 

-- Kam Williams, Sly Fox Reviews

"This is the kind of book I will go back to time and again." 

-- Lucy Bernholz, PHILANTHROPY 2173

"This is the most powerful representation of philanthropy that I have seen in more than a decade in this field. The stories, the quotes, the voices and the photographs are uniformly vivid and extraordinary....A reminder that, in its roots, philanthropy should be felt, not thought." 

-- Robert K. Ross, M.D., The California Endowment

"Giving Back belongs in every American home, not just every home of Americans of African descent. A story that has not been told!"

-- Claire Gaudiani, PhD, author of The Greater Good, Generosity Unbound and Daughters of the Democracy  

From the Author

Zora Neale Hurston, a writer whom I admire, once said: "There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you." Giving Back contains a vast collection of stories--photographic imagery and narrative form--that I ached to tell.

-- Valaida Fullwood
