Summary
"Rosenwald is the incredible story of how businessman and philanthropist Julius Rosenwald joined forces with Booker T. Washington and African American communities in the segregationist Jim Crow South to build more than 5000 schools. Inspired by the Jewish doctrine of 'tikkun olam' or repairing the world, and a deep concern over racial inequality in America, the Rosenwald Fund supported major African-American artists and intellectuals, like Marian Anderson, W.E.B. Du Bois, Langston Hughes, Jacob Lawrence, and Gordon Parks. This unprecedented historical partnership impacted American culture for generations and continues to inspire today."--Container.
