From The Chronicle of Philanthropy
What are your peers reading on these winter days? The Chronicle of Philanthropy asked our followers on Twitter (@philanthropy) and in our LinkedIn Group what they recommend. Here’s what they said.
- Decolonizing Wealth: Indigenous Wisdom to Heal Divides and Restore Balance, by Edgar Villanueva. The author and grant maker, who is an enrolled member of the Lumbee Tribe in North Carolina, argues that colonial dynamics are still at play in philanthropic and financial institutions. He makes the case that native ways can guide change at the institutions that control people’s access to money. Thanks to Nancy Withbroe (@NWithbroe) for recommending this book.
- Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds, by Adrienne Maree Brown. Through essays, poems, exercises, dialogues, and more, Brown encourages readers to assess the ongoing forces of change to be positioned to help shape a better future. Thanks to Nancy Withbroe (@NWithbroe) for recommending this.
