Julius Rosenwald's life is the rags to riches tory of the man who made Sears & Roebuck into the institution we all know. In partnership with African American communities throughout the South, he built 5300 schools to educate young blacks in a superior environment, prior to the civil rights movement. This film is the store of his life and his philanthropic efforts in support of African-Americans.
