Entrepreneur, activist, and community builder Madam C.J. Walker not only created a hair-care empire, she also built up the communities she lived in, especially in Indianapolis. But she was more than just another rich person who donated money to charity in the early twentieth century. Walker was a significant philanthropist who challenged Jim Crow’s racism and sexism in her day, and continues to shape generosity in ours.
Join Dr. Tyrone McKinley Freeman, award-winning Assistant Professor of Philanthropic Studies at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, as he discusses his new book, Madam C. J. Walker’s Gospel of Giving: Black Women’s Philanthropy during Jim Crow.
