Come to see philanthropy differently.


February 10 - May 6, 2018  
Richland Library, Main Branch
1431 Assembly Street
Columbia, SC 29201

**Admission is free during the library's regular visiting hours.**


After a nationwide tour, Columbia will serve as South Carolina’s inaugural host of Giving Back: The Soul Of Philanthropy Reframed and Exhibited, a multimedia exhibition dedicated to sharing the tradition of African-American philanthropy. The Soul of Philanthropy presents the long and unsung legacy of black philanthropy—from generous donors of wealth to every day givers carving a way out of no way.


What does philanthropy look like?
