THE PANDEMIC PREMONITION:

Darren has been shaking up the world of philanthropy. Since becoming president of the Ford Foundation. One of this country’s largest and most storied philanthropies. He’s called for donors to become doers. He has reoriented the foundation’s more than half a billion dollars in annual grant-making around a single goal. Fighting inequality, which he calls “the greatest harm to our democracy.” Lesley Stahl profiles Walker, a gay, Black man who grew up poor.
