Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington forged one of the earliest collaborations between Jews and African Americans to create schools throughout the nation for Black children who had no access to publicly funded education. It was an honor to interview author and photographer Andrew Feiler about this history and how he showcases it in his second book, “A Better Life for Their Children: Julius Rosenwald, Booker T. Washington, and the 4,978 Schools that Changed America”.
The photography exhibition, “A Better Life for Their Children”, debuted at The National Center for Civil and Human Rights on May 22nd and it’s going to be up until December. You can get tickets to the museum here.
