Dear Mr. Rosenwald
by Carole Boston Weatherford; illustrated by Gregory Christie

Based on the true story of the Rosenwald schools built in the rural African-American South in the 1920s, award winning writer and poet Carol Boston Weatherford tells the lyrical story of third grader Ovella as her family and community help each other build a new, and much-prayed for, school. Renowned, award winning illustrator Gregory Christie joins Weatherford with provocative gouache illustrations with this empowering story about an African-American community who builds their own school. Inspired by Booker T. Washington, Julius Rosenwald, the son of an immigrant and the president of Sears, Roebuck and Co., donated millions of dollars to build schools for African-American children in the rural South.
