Establishing the Rosenwald Schools: The Partnership of Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington 12 – 1pm

Sponsored by Northwest Neighbors Village. Aviva Kempner's film, Rosenwald, tells the incredible story of how philanthropist and president of Sears, Roebuck Julius Rosenwald partnered with Booker T. Washington, educator, author and orator, in establishing over 5,000 schools for African Americans in the Jim Crow South. The Rosenwald Schools exclusively served more than 700,000 black children over four decades, thereby shaping the educational and economic future of an entire generation of African American families. Aviva will share with us what it was like to bring this remarkable story to the screen and show some bonus material from the film. Registration required by 9/13 and limited to 100.
