Film Screening: Rosenwald

Aviva Kempner’s Rosenwald: The Remarkable Story of a Jewish Partnership with African American Communities is the incredible story of Julius Rosenwald, who never finished high school but rose to become the president of Sears. Influenced by the writings of the educator Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African American communities to build more than 5,300 schools during the early part of the 20th century.
