Rosenwald: Toward a More Perfect Union
WATCH THE TRAILER
Rosenwald: Toward A More Perfect Union tells the inspiring story of the partnerships Julius Rosenwald formed with Booker T. Washington and with African American communities. These powerful connections led to the building of nearly 5,000 schools in 15 southern states. These schools educated one-third of the African American children in the South during the era of “separate but equal” education.
The film also presents the Julius Rosenwald Fund fellowship program that provided awards to nearly 900 talented individuals, two-thirds of whom were African Americans. Their accomplishments across a wide variety of artistic, scholarly and scientific fields, made lasting contributions to our country.
