Promoting Social Justice: A Vision of Philanthropic Activism
Source: Carnegie Corporation of New York
During the 1960s, civil unrest spilled into the streets of America as violence erupted in many urban areas across the nation. Under the direction of Alan Pifer, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York from 1967 to 1982, the Corporation and other foundations initiated grantmaking that not only focused on studying a problem but also on supporting organizations that created agendas, organized for change, and actively pursued legal strategies to achieve both. This edition of Carnegie Results documents that social activist agenda and tells the story of the institutions and organizations whose work continues today. Focuses on the Corporation's support of African-American lawyers, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and women.
