Please join us for the second event of the three-part 2019 Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans HBCU Speaker Series: Presented by Morris Bart. The program will feature remarks on the life and legacy of Julius Rosenwald and the Rosenwald Schools from the Honorable Robert G. Stanton (former Director of the U.S. National Park Service - the first African-American to be so appointed - and a graduate of the historically black Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas) and Stephanie Deutsch (the author of "You Need A Schoolhouse: Booker T. Washington, Julius Rosenwald and the Building of Schools for the Segregated South”).

The HBCU Speaker Series is aimed at connecting the Jewish and African-American communities in the Greater New Orleans area on relevant topics of mutual interest. The past, present, and future of the Jewish/African-American relationship will be explored by different national and local experts, with the goal of engaging both Jews and African-Americans in the region. 

Sponsor: The 2019 Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans HBCU Speaker Series is presented by Morris Bart.
