The Educational Legacy of Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Working with African American intellectual Booker T. Washington, Jewish businessman and philanthropist Julius Rosenwald established challenge grants that lead to the creation between 1912 and 1937 of almost 5,000 schools, known as Rosenwald Schools, for African American children throughout the segregated south. Come learn from our distinguished guests who have dedicated their time to documenting, preserving, and sharing the historical and educational legacy of Washington and Rosenwald, “one of the earliest collaborations between Jews and African Americans,” according to photographer Andrew Feiler. They will discuss Rosenwald and Washington’s historic partnership, the impact the Rosenwald schools had on the African American community and the importance of remembering and preserving their legacy. This program is in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr Day.
