The incredible story of Julius Rosenwald, who never finished high school, but rose to become the Chairman of Sears. Influenced by Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African American communities during the Jim Crow South to build over 5,300 schools. Unsung Hero!!
A fabulous film showing the impact that one man can have. Rosenwald is the anti-Trump, who considered his wealth the product chiefly of luck, and used it to support African-American schools and a pantheon of artists from Marion Anderson to James Baldwin to Ralph Ellison and Langston Hughes. Bravo for this film.
An informative look at an unlikely (and largely unsung) American hero. Despite some pacing issues in the first 30 and last 20 minutes, the film generally tells its story well and in tremendous depth, with plenty of great archive footage and engaging contemporary interviews. Most of all, though, the picture shows what miraculous results are possible when we make the effort to become involved and make a difference.
a must see! Actual old film footage and humor add to an inspiring portrait of a man who helped build Sears, Roebuck into the Amazon.com of it's day. He built the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and refused to have his name on it. How different from today's mega-donors. He helped countless blacks, including Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, and Jacob Lawrence, and whites including Woody Guthrie, and Jews living in poverty in the Ukraine. Do not miss seeing this film!
