Join Tamara Lucas Copeland '73 author of "Daughters of the Dream: Eight Girls from Richmond who Grew Up in the Civil Rights Era" for a dialogue on invisible racism moderated by Viola Osborne Baskerville '73 .

Tamara Lucas Copeland is African-American, a child of the South, born, educated and still living there. This distinction provides a unique personal vantage point for issues of racial equity. She is also an only child, a circumstance that sometimes leads to friends being more like family. These factors contribute to her love for her forever friends, her perspective on the role race plays in America, and her authorship of the book and blog "Daughters of the Dream."

Tamara is the former president of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers (WRAG). Founded in 1992, WRAG is a nonprofit association with over 100 of the most well-respected foundations and corporate giving programs in the Washington, D.C., region as its members. Her leadership with WRAG’s groundbreaking work, "Putting Racism on the Table," has received widespread recognition for enabling the philanthropic community to understand issues around race so they might work for racial equity.
