Preservation Virginia and the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation will be hosting a free screening of Rosenwald on January 13 from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the Dumas Center. Visit Eventbrite to reserve your seats. 

Rosenwald tells the incredible story of Julius Rosenwald, the son of an immigrant peddler who never finished high school, but rose to become the President of Sears. Influenced by the writings of the educator Booker T. Washington, this Jewish philanthropist joined forces with African American communities during the Jim Crow South to build over 5,300 schools during the early part of the 20th century.
