United States, 2017, 94 min.
Philadelphia Premiere
Dir. Stanley Nelson
A haven for Black intellectuals, artists and revolutionaries—and the path of promise toward the American dream—historically Black colleges and universities have educated the architects of freedom movements and cultivated leaders in every field. They have been unapologetically “Black” for 150 years. Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson, Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities examines the impact HBCUs have had on American history, culture, and national identity. Tell Them We Are Rising will air nationally on the acclaimed PBS series Independent Lens in February 2018.
