'Rosenwald' doc will reaffirm your faith in the American dream says the Daily Herald.
Born in the heart of the Land of Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois; Julius Rosenwald, the son of German-Jewish immigrants, rose to become one of the wealthiest men in America as well as a beloved humanitarian. As the son of a German Jewish clothier, he went into the family business. He then teamed up with Richard Sears to build Sears, Roebuck and Co. He became Sears President from 1908–1924 and was its chairman 1924-1932.
In partnership with Booker T. Washington, Rosenwald seeded for the creation of more than 5,500 schools for poor, rural African-American children in southern states at a time when few received any public education. From 1915 to 1932, 660,000 rural southern African-American students benefited from an initiative that truly speaks to The American Dream.
