We explore how they began collecting the stories of black fundraisers, and the ways those stories are about their joy, pain, freedom, and love — and how they experience success and racism in the world of nonprofit work.
Nneka, Camila, and Nicole challenge our listeners to read these stories with an open heart, and really allow the experiences of the authors to land and to feel real.
You can read the authors’ blog post, which includes an excerpt from each of the collected stories, on the Fundraising Leadership Blog.
