Aviva Kempner

Congratulations to Aviva Kempner, ’76, whose 2015 documentary film “Rosenwald” was the focus of Courtland Milloy’s column in today’s Washington Post.

In his column, Milloy used the history of the Rosenwald Schools, as documented by the film, as an example of how Black communities rallied to support and honor education in the past as a model for what we might do today to conquer continuing educational inequality.

Read Courtland Milloy’s column in the Washington Post.

See a 2015 Washington Post review of “Rosenwald.”
