Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the profoundly influential Rosenwald Fund established in October 1917 by the visionary Chicago philanthropist Julius Rosenwald, Director Aviva Kempner presents the DC premiere of her brand new two-disc DVD Package of Rosenwald, containing 39 new bonus features at the Edlavitch DCJCC.

Panelists include author Stephanie Deutsch; Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat; civil rights lawyer Leslie Harris; daughter of Dr. Charles Drew, Charlene Drew Jarvis; author Gary Krist; activist poet E. Ethelbert Miller; Chicago Tribune Columnist Clarence Page; Rabbi David Saperstein; NAACP Washington Bureau Director, Hilary Shelton; and Julius Rosenwald’s great grandson, David Stern.
