Tell them We Are Rising: Historically Black Colleges and Universities (documentary showing and discussion) Diversity Index # 0807
The rich history of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) began before the end of slavery, flourished in the 20th century, and profoundly influenced the course of the nation for over 150 years — yet remains largely unknown. With Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities, the latest documentary from Stanley Nelson (Black Panthers, Freedom Riders) and Marco Williams, the powerful story of the rise, influence, and evolution of HBCUs comes to life.
Doors open at 5:00pm, the showing will begin at 5:30pm. There will be a discussion immediately following the film showing facilitated by Schnell Garrett of Student Life and English professor Yvonne Kane.
