As WRAG's Putting Racism on the Table series kicks off, Tamara writes: "It may seem to some that African-Americans have achieved Dr. King’s dream of being judged by the quality of our character, not by the color of our skin. Most black Americans know that is not the case. There is no postracial America. The question is: does philanthropy know?"
Philanthropic leaders are invited to a six-month series to explore structural racism, unconscious bias, and white privilege. The goal of the series is learning and a greater understanding of how racism contributes to disparate outcomes in our region, so that philanthropy can act to address one of America's most urgent scourges.
