  • There is a long and storied tradition of philanthropy in the Black community. It is a tradition that is alive and expanding. Because Black philanthropy is underrecognized, an exhibit and educational opportunity will soon appear in Washtenaw County. It's called, "Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited." WEMU's David Fair takes a look at how that is playing out in Southeast Michigan and Washtenaw County with Colin Mays, co-chair of the Soul of Philanthropy Michigan, and Janet Haynes, chair of the African American Endowment Fund in Washtenaw County.
