Last weekend Aviva visited Longue Vue House & Gardens, the New Orleans home of Julius Rosenwald’s daughter Edith Stern, for a special screening of Rosenwald. Edith, like her father, was a gracious philanthropist, humanitarian, civil rights activist, and assisted in the establishment of Dillard University. The home now serves as not only a museum and garden, but a great learning facility for everyone with tours of the estate. While visiting, Aviva was able to join a tour and take some photos of the lovely household.
Needless to say, with a screening at such a historic place rich with culture and educational resources, the film drew a large crowd and filled the venue.
