HSRC Press,Adams and Ike's Books invite you to the launch of 'Philanthropy in South Africa: Horizontality, Ubuntu and Social Justice' edited by Shauna Mottiar and Mvuselelo Ngcoya.

Dominant narratives of philanthropy often portray Africans as mere recipients of aid, usually from well-endowed, Western almoners
– the West distributing charity to impecunious Africans. The contributors to this volume turn this argument on its head and
ask: what about the beneficent spirit of multitudes of Africans
whose acts of generosity sustain millions of their compatriots?
