Take in a screening of Rosenwald, as part of the seventh annual San Luis Obispo Jewish Film Festival, on Jan.14 at 7 p.m. at the Palm Theatre.
The documentary tells the little-known story and legacy of philanthropist Julian Rosenwald, founder of Sears Roebuck who joined with Booker T. Washington to build 5,500 schools in the Jim Crow South for disenfranchised African-Americans. Rosenwald’s great-grandson, Lessing Stern, will participate in a Q-and-A prior to the movie screening.
The festival runs Jan. 14 through 16. For tickets and more information, visit jccslo.com/films.
