From the award-winning director of The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg and Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg, Aviva Kempner’s ROSENWALD 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 educator Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African-American communities during the Jim Crow South to build over 5300 schools during the early part of the 20th century. Inspired by the Jewish ideals of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), and a deep concern for racial inequality, the modest Rosenwald used his wealth to become one of the country’s most important philanthropists and Pre-Civil Rights Movement social activists. He gave away $62 million in his lifetime, and it’s time to shine a spotlight on this remarkable man’s achievements.
