Mike and Amy Jackson Recognizing Julius Rosenwald's Birthday

Aug 12, 2019

Support for NPR Illinois comes from the day sponsorship of Mike and Amy Jackson, recognizing the birthday of Julius Rosenwald, born in 1862 in Springfield. America's first social philanthropist, Julius championed African American education. A study bill to create a Julius Rosenwald national park has been introduced by Senator Durbin. Happy Birthday, Mr. Rosenwald.
