Call & Response
In this commentary on the nonprofit fundraising process, Memphis Music Initiative’s (MMI) Executive Director Amber Hamilton explains (with help from Harriet Tubman) why current philanthropic practices are inequitable, unhelpful, and nonsensical. But these practices can be changed. Through its Call & Response initiative, MMI is modeling a new way of thinking about grantmaking, funding, and equity in the arts. Black Pay Matters. Black Legacy Matters. Black Rest Matters.
