What is Black feminism and how is the Black Feminist Fund moving funds to work led by Black women? In this episode of #OnWhatMatters, Black Feminist Fund co-founder, Tynesha McHarris, speaks with Ford Foundation vice president of program, Hilary Pennington, on her work and how she dreamed up this new radical philanthropic initiative at her kitchen table.
