Booker T. Washington with Julius Rosenwald

Description

In 1911, Rosenwald met Booker T. Washington, at the time the best known black man in America. For the next four years the two men collaborated on a plan to create schoolhouses for African American children in small southern towns, where educational opportunities were lacking.
