Rosenwald schools were a partnership between a white, northern, Jewish businessman and a Black, southern, Christian educator. From 1912-37, when there were few public schools for African Americans, the program built 4,978 schools for Blacks across 15 states. It transformed America, driving dramatic improvement in African American educational attainment and fostered the generation who became the leaders and foot soldiers of the civil rights movement. Andrew Feiler's work is the first comprehensive photographic account of this hidden history.
