Lessons from the Rosenwald Schools (2022 Stack Stories LLC) is a short documentary film by Claudia Stack, Ed.M. & Richard T. Newkirk, Ed.D.  Using clips selected from hundreds of interviews with alumni and former teachers, this film highlights thematic experiences alumni had at historic African American schools.  Dr. Newkirk’s and Ms. Stack’s comments help viewers to understand how the schools fostered a culture of excellence.  Dr. Newkirk is an educator/alumnus of these historic schools, and Ms. Stack is an educator/ filmmaker who has been documenting African American education heritage since 2003.  Her award-winning documentaries have screened at film festivals, conferences, and many other venues. This film reveals practices that were common in Rosenwald and other historic African American schools, specific teaching strategies that are validated by current research, and recommends ways that we can move forward together.
