Film -- Rosenwald: The Remarkable Story of a Jewish Partnership with African American Communities @ Rogow Room, Transylvania County Library | Brevard | North Carolina | United States

Showing of the documentary —  Rosenwald: The Remarkable Story of a Jewish Partnership with African American Communities,

The film tells the the incredible story of how businessman and philanthropist Julius Rosenwald joined with African-American communities in the South to build schools for them during the early part of the 20th century. This historical partnership as well as the modern-day attempts to maintain or reconfigure the schools is a great dramatic story, yet too little-known. Brevard’s own Rosenwald school was part of this story.  The film runs approximately 95 minutes.  

You may bring along a bag lunch to enjoy during the film.  We’ll have cookies and coffee courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
