Never Underestimate the Power of a Network

No successful movement has ever come about without the power of a great network. And when I use the word great I do not mean large in numbers. The origins of a great network usually come about because of a shared vision for a better life, the mental and psychological exhaustion due to injustice, or simply the human need for connection.

As a philanthropist and philanthropic practitioner from the African American diaspora, I was initially excited to explore your issue on Diaspora philanthropy and excited to know that philanthropy by and for communities from myriad diasporas around the world might find an audience among the mainstream philanthropic community. For those of us for whom this work is core to our culture, it is in no way a ‘trend’ as I’ve often heard my colleagues refer to it.
