Writing can be a very isolating experience because it requires such intense time and energy to wrestle with ideas and make sense of historical archives. I am very much looking forward to interacting with audiences during and after the virtual book tour to see what they think. I know what I think is interesting in the book, but I really want to hear what resonates with audiences.

In this Journal, I’ll be chronicling my experiences interacting with audiences during my virtual book tour. Along the way, I’ll share insights on philanthropy and communities of color and other issues as they arise. My sincere thanks to everyone who has supported this book.
