Phebe Givens

The board, staff, and community of The Givens Foundation for African American Literature mourn the death of our co-founder, Phebe Givens, and commemorate her groundbreaking achievements. Phebe was a dedicated community leader. Resolute in her belief in the transformative power of literature and education, Phebe devoted her life to serving and giving back to the community. We at the Givens Foundation are honored to continue her work. We will miss her profoundly as we carry on her legacy.

 

 

Major support for The Givens Foundation activities is provided by Givens Foundation individual donors, Target, The Edward J. Phillips Family Foundation, and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
