DeRay Davis (Celebrity Show)
The Comedy ZoneApril 02, 2015 8:00 PM
900 NC Music Factory Boulevard
Charlotte, NC 28202
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, comedian-turned-actor DeRay Davis can most recently be "scene" and heard in the blockbuster mega hit 21 Jump Street, Jumping the Broom and his wildly successful Showtime 1 hour Comedy Special, DeRay Davis: Power Play. He lends his voice and writing talent to countless characters on Kanye Wests Albums the BoonDocks and currently on Adult Swims Black Dynamite!Davis achieved his career breakthrough at the Laffapalooza Festival in Atlanta, GA, then scored a triple whammy by winning the Comedy Central Laugh Riots Competition and landing covetable spots in the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and the Cedric the Entertainer Festival. Throughout, the comic wove vulgar and droll, yet also telling and deeply personal, routines around the subjects of race, poverty, and his challenging experiences growing up in the Windy City projects with a dysfunctional African-American family.

The Influence Of Identity and Culture On Giving At The Levine Museum Of The New South
Levine Museum of the New SouthApril 02, 2015 5:30 PM
200 East 7th Street
Charlotte, NC 28202
Recognizing that all cultures have traditions of giving, a diverse panel will discuss philanthropy in African American, Native American, Asian American, Latino, LGBTQ and other historically marginalized communities. Identity-based philanthropy is the practice of leveraging resources by and from a community on its own behalf. In recent years, the definition of philanthropy has begun to widen to include any-size contributions, not just of money but of time and know-how; and not just from the wealthy and elite. Rather than practice their philanthropy in isolation, these everyday philanthropists are coming together to develop opportunities for giving that generate not just dollars but knowledge, enthusiasm, expertise, activism, and pride. We hope that this panel discussion inspires everyday giversof all backgrounds, genders, races, and ethnicities to embrace their power as philanthropists. Communities of color are growing in assets In many communities of color, average income still hovers below the overall American averagebut that gap is closing. While there is still staggering poverty on Native American reservations, per capita income is climbing three times more rapidly for Native Americans than for Americans over all. In the last two decades, the number of Latino households earning more than $100,000 a year has risen more than 126 percent. Meanwhile, median income for Asian American families trumps the national average, increasing more than 10 percent between 2000 and 2009. Average Arab American income is 25 percent higher than the national average, giving this group a buying power of more than $100 billion. Communities of color are giving at increasing rates and levels Almost across the board, communities of color are intensifying their charitable giving. Sixty-three percent of Latino households now make charitable donations. Charitable giving by African Americans is increasing at a faster rate than their aggregate income and wealth. On average, Asian American households give away a larger percentage of their income per year than white Americans. So do African Americans25 percent more, and this doesnt even account for the ample contributions of time and know-how being poured back into communities of color, which cant be monetized but are often more valuable than dollars.  The need for such giving is also rising Historically, communities of color have received a very small percentage of mainstream philanthropic dollars despite an often disproportionate need. For example, Native Americans have the highest poverty rates in the United States (25.7 percent) yet receive just 0.2 percent to 0.3 percent of available philanthropic funds. The statistics are similarly low for other communities of color. Meanwhile, the global economic crisis continues to put a profound strain on public funding, precipitating deep cuts to essential social programs just when their services are most requiredthereby further increasing the need and the call for private dollars to help fill in the gaps. In response, community donors are directing their contributions inward, building their advocacy skills to draw services to their communities and partnering with local government, business, and others to address critical needs. From Cultures of Giving:  Energizing And Expanding Philanthropy by and for Communities of Color, a report by The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, 2012.
