Under the Kudzu traces the history of two Rosenwald schools in Pender County, NC. Rosenwald schools were schools that the African American community helped to build during the segregation era. They typically raised 25% of the cost of the school (in addition to paying their taxes), which was matched by the Rosenwald Fund. Alumni and former teachers share their experiences in this moving documentary about African American sacrifice for education. Under the Kudzu won the Director’s Choice award at the 2012 Cape Fear Independent Film Festival and was screened at the NTHP Rosenwald School Conference, as well as many other venues.
