Congressman John Lewis

Documentary film-maker, Aviva Kempner, '76, has shared this 7 1/2 minute snippet of her interview with the late, great, John Lewis, captured during the filming of Rosenwald, the Remarkable Story of a Jewish Partnership with African American Communities - about how the Sears & Roebuck magnate, working with African-American communties, provided funding and seed-grants for 5,500 schools across the South.

Aviva writes,

"I remember with fondness interviewing the Congressman about his early education and how happy he was remembering his learning at a Rosenwald school for the Rosenwald film. See the interview below, and hopefully the bridge will be renamed after him.

And we will keep on doing good trouble in our films. We are continuing that tradition for our new film, Imaging the Indians, The Fight Against Native American Mascoting.

Keep safe,

Aviva Kempner"
