the soul of philanthropy atlanta
Atlanta will host The Soul of Philanthropy (TSOPATL), an art exhibition dedicated to sharing the tradition of African American philanthropy. The multimedia fixture 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.
Comprised of highly innovative presentations of over a dozen vignette stories and more than 50 black-and-white images, the exhibition conjures philanthropic musings across generations. A robust offering of talks, panel discussions and public forums accompany the exhibition and allow groups to explore a broad range of topics to ignite a movement of conscious philanthropy by empowering a generation of Americans to recognize their power and responsibility to give back.
This comprehensive multimedia moving exhibition is 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.
