Black History Month, Brooklyn

A very special story has been told which depicts the partnership between a Jewish man's struggles to remove the barriers faced by African-Americans more than two hundred years ago. Neighborhood Journal attended the screening of Rosenwald, a film by Aviva Kempner, and the panel discussion among the Black, Jewish and Latino communities, which followed, as part of the Brooklyn Public Library's Black History Month celebration.
