“Tell Them We Are Rising” explores the pivotal role that historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played in American history, culture, and national identity. Today, more than half of all African-American professionals are graduates of HBCUs. The documentary tells the story of HBCUs’ vital importance to America’s black population, demonstrating the power of higher education to transform lives and advance civil rights and equality in the face of intolerance and injustice.
The programs at this venue are free and open to the public. First come, first serve.
