NPCA’s Park Talk series Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Julius Rosenwald
June 30, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC-5
NPCA’s Park Talk series is a way for park advocates to stay informed and engaged in the most important issues facing America’s national parks.
Join us on June 30 for a special discussion on the campaign to create a multi-site national park celebrating the life and legacy of Julius Rosenwald. Rosenwald was the son of German Jewish immigrants who partnered with African American communities across the South to build school houses for children who otherwise would have had extremely limited access to the public education to which they were entitled. Rosenwald believed in investing in people; those investments are still paying dividends. His story is especially relevant at this critical time.
