Schools of Hope!
Come let this exhibit pique your interest in the impact an unexpected partnership made on an entire generation of African American families. The collaboration between German-Jewish American Businessman, Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears & Roebuck, and African American scholar, Booker T. Washington, head of the Tuskegee Institute, was responsible for the creation of nearly 5,000 Rosenwald Schools during the early twentieth century. Learn more at the Ben May Main Library!
