In celebration of Black Philanthropy Month, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation will host a reception and conversation about Black philanthropy. It will be on Tuesday, August 13 at 5:15 p.m. at the Attucks Theatre in Norfolk.

The program will include a keynote address by Marsha Morgan of Birmingham, chair of the Community Investment Network, a national network of giving circles. She is a founding member of the Birmingham Change Fund, a giving circle of African American professionals who pool their resources to create change in the Birmingham community.

The event also will feature attorney Sharon Goodywn of Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, vice chair of the community foundation board of directors. She recently was elected as the first African American and woman to serve in a top leadership role on the community foundation's board.

This is the second annual celebration sponsored by the community foundation for Black Philanthropy Month, which is recognized yearly in August.

The event is free, and advance registration is required.
