Ms. Dixon is one of the sheroes of philanthropy.  She embodies what it means to give back and be a concerned citizen. She represents the type of philanthropic legacy of African Americans that is often overlooked because she goes about her philanthropy in an understated manner. But anyone who lives in Greensboro, North Carolina and has the privilege of sitting with Ms. Dixon knows of her three passions:  a commitment to promote education, concern for the homeless, and an international program she began in 1996 through the Links, Inc. Also, her love for her alma mater, Bennett College, epitomizes the power of Black philanthropy to impact and change lives. She gave her alma mater a significant gift, toward the Intergenerational Center, the new home for the college’s preschool program, a learning lab for students and a volunteer opportunity for older adults. The building has a new name -- the Martin-Dixon Intergenerational Center -- to honor her philanthropic commitment.
