John Malveaux: Rosenwald Schools were built for African-Americans

John Malveaux of 

Happy Roshanah 
I salute the Jewish philanthropist Julius Rosenwald.  "Rosenwald School was any of the more than five thousand schools, shops, and teacher homes in the United States that were built primarily for the education of African-American children in the South during the early twentieth century. The project was the product of the partnership of Julius Rosenwald, a Jewish-American clothier who became part-owner and president of Sears, Roebuck and Company and the African American leader, educator, and philanthropist, Booker T. Washington, who was president of Tuskegee Institute."  (
