Virtually hosted from the Historic Hampton House and the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, join the community as we gather online to honor and uplift the rich legacy of Black leadership and generosity in Miami. Together, we will learn from and celebrate community leaders, artists, philanthropists, and local organizations working to strengthen Greater Miami’s Black communities.
In our program, we are very excited to announce the launch of the Racial Equity Video Anthology, a community resource to elevate the work and voices of racial justice leaders and groups in Miami and distill insights learned by The Miami Foundation. Please dive in and enjoy the treasure trove of materials, we hope it sparks a conversation and compels you to share it far and wide.
State of Black Philanthropy is all about celebrating and bolstering Black excellence and success in our community and Black entrepreneurs are no exception. We teamed up with the amazing Janey Tate, CEO & Editor-In-Chief of Hylo-News, South Florida’s only news blog dedicated to Black and Brown millennials, to power a treasure map of gems — Black-owned businesses in primarily Black Miami neighborhoods — for you to visit and show your support. Whether it be fresh-squeezed juice, a new piece of art, or some delicious cuisine, we encourage you to join us in investing in an equitable community by picking up a treat from one of these businesses while you tune in for this year’s program.
