Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited - Atlanta

Atlanta will host The Soul of Philanthropy (TSOP), an art exhibition dedicated to sharing the tradition of African American philanthropy. The Soul of Philanthropy presents the long and unsung legacy of Black philanthropists—from generous donors of wealth to ingenious givers carving a way out of no way.


This free and open to the public exposition will open at the Auburn Avenue Research library, during the holiday season beginning November 1st 2017. The exhibition runs through January 22nd, 2018 during the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday in the 50th year since his assassination and culminates at the start of Black History Month.


The masterminds behind this inspiring installation begin with Valaida Fullwood, the award–winning author of Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists, an award winning 400–page hardcover book profiling stories of philanthropy among African Americans that was developed with photographer Charles Thomas.


This comprehensive multimedia moving museum has been brought to the city by presenting sponsor: Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, in partnership with Hammonds House Museum and the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History. Local support has also come from African American Development Officers, Southeastern Council of Foundations, Wells Fargo, and State Farm.
