Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited, Pop-Up, Abridged Edition
Groundbreaking in focus and depth, the new multimedia exhibition Giving Back: The Soul of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited is touring the country and will be hosted by MRG Foundation, in partnership with The Oregon Community Foundation, in January of 2017 prior to its international launch. The exhibit features inspirational images and stories of generosity among Americans of African descent. Selected elements of the comprehensive exhibit compose a versatile, compact version, called the Pop-Up, Abridged Edition, which is designed to make the exhibit’s content more accessible. The pop-up edition’s 20 black-and- white photographs and narratives provide insight to centuries-old cultural customs and beliefs about giving and generosity that—though rarely referred to as “philanthropy” in Black communities—have long been an integral and transformational force in lives and communities throughout American society.
