Description Information

Booker T. Washington, the founder of Tuskegee Institute, and Julius Rosenwald, the president of Sears, Roebuck and Company, first met in 1911 at a Chicago luncheon. By charting the lives of these two men both before and after the meeting, Stephanie Deutsch offers a fascinating study of the circumstances that would bring thousands of modern schoolhouses to African American communities across the rural South in the era leading up to the civil rights movement.
