A recent Chronicle of Philanthropy article illustrates how business leaders were moved by the opportunity to educate American youth about one of the greatest contributions to the civil rights movement through the Oscar nominated movie, “Selma”. Donors raced to contribute to “pop-up” projects in nonprofits, school districts, and independent organizations across the country that could connect youth to movie screenings.
