‘The Rosenwald Connection’

It’s the incredible story of Rosenwald Schools – which out-smarted Jim Crow and educated hundreds of thousands of African Americans in the rural South.

Pickensville Rosenwald School, Pickensville, Alabama.

In the early 20th century, a collaboration between Booker T. Washington, the famous African American educator, and Julius Rosenwald, a Jewish businessman and philanthropist, led to the construction of nearly 5,000 schools for black children in the rural South.

​

Why? Because there weren’t any, to speak of.

Rosenwald Schools made education possible for hundreds of thousands of black children in the Jim Crow era.

​

Rosenwald Schools changed America for the better. And our nation still reaps the benefits today.

‘The Rosenwald Connection,’ a one-hour television documentary, is in production now.
