Don’t miss Aviva Kempner in New Orleans this month! She will present the newly produced bonus feature on Edith Stern, the daughter of Julius Rosenwald who was so active in civil rights in New Orleans. The bonus feature will screen February 15th at the Longue Vue House and Gardens, co-sponsored by The National Council of Jewish Women.

Kempner is currently touring the film at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with poet Ethelbert Miller. As part of the program, Miller will talk about poet Langston Hughes, a Rosenwald Fund recipient who used the funds for his own tour of schools in the South in 1931. Hughes’ tour has inspired the Rosenwald Tour. Miller will give presentations at three classes at Dillard. Stay tuned for more tour dates!
