Center on Community Philanthropy releases online edition of compendium
The Center on Community Philanthropy at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service has released a digital version of its second edition compendium, “Pathways to Racial Healing in the American South: A Community Philanthropy Strategy.”
The publication features essays by Chancellor Joel Anderson of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Minnijean Brown Trickey of the Little Rock Nine, John A. Powell from the University of California at Berkeley, and Dr. David Williams from Harvard University and others.
The center’s compendium reflects the work and expertise of researchers, practitioners and senior executives from across the country and addresses the topic of racial healing.
Anderson’s piece chronicles the establishment of the Institute on Race and Ethnicity, its mission, and the challenges the university has taken on to eliminate racial and ethnic discrimination.
According to Chancellor Anderson, ethnic injustice is a community problem that requires a community solution. Involvement of the community in the planning has been sought and received and has been beneficial to all stakeholders. Read more in the second edition compendium, on the center’s website.
The digital release of the second edition compendium follows the launch of the printed publication at the Center on Community Philanthropy’s third annual summit on Racial Equity and Healing earlier this year. The event was held as a special commemoration of the 15th anniversary of President Bill Clinton’s “One America in the 21st Century” initiative on race.
