ABOUT THIS EPISODE'S GUEST

I sat down with Nneka Allen, Camila Vital Nunes Pereira and Nicole Salmon, three Black, female nonprofit fundraisers and co-editors/co-authors of “Collecting Courage.” We discuss their harrowing experiences with anti-Black Racism in the sector and The racial trauma they’ve sustained as a result.

I share a few teasers from the book and indulge the ladies in a heartfelt discussion in which we share laughs, tears, encouragement, and support for one another.

ABOUT THE BOOK, COLLECTING COURAGE

Collecting Courage: Joy, Pain, Freedom, Love is a collection of stories documenting racism and survival by 14 accomplished Black fundraisers working in charities across North America. With searing and intimate detail, they write about their experiences with anti-Black racism—about coping with being last hired, first fired, overlooked for promotion to outright hostility in toxic workplaces. Their testimony chips away at the idea of the inherent goodness of the charitable sector.

In addition to the editors Nneka Allen, Camila Vital Nunes Pereira and Nicole Salmon, contributors to Collecting Courage include Birgit Burton, Christal Cherry, Kishshana Palmer, Heba Mahmoud, Mide Akerewusi, Naimah Bilal, Niambi Martin-John, Fatou Jammeh, Muthoni Kariuki, Sherrie James and Marva Wisdom.
