Abstract:

African American women philanthropists of the 21st Century can learn from the African American women philanthropists of the Progressive Era. There is a long tradition of philanthropy in the African American community, from their arrival in the United States through the present. The conditions facing African Americans immediately following the Civil War and during the Reconstruction Era served as catalyst for the Negro Women’s Club movements. During the Progressive Era, African American women emerged as the major philanthropists and leaders in social reform movements, focusing on racial uplift and institution building within the African American community. This paper discusses the unique aspects of African American and African American women’s philanthropy from historical perspectives emphasizing self-help, and the social and economic strengths of their community in developing sustainable philanthropic efforts. Examples of selected African American philanthropists are Harriet Tubman, Maggie Lena Walker, Lugenia Burns Hope, and Mary McLeod Bethune and the lessons learned from them for contemporary African American Women philanthropist are highlighted.
