Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges & Universities

Free screening of the movie-RSVP by February 16

A haven for Black intellectuals, artists and trailblazers—and path of promise toward the American dream—Black colleges and universities have educated the architects of freedom movements and cultivated leaders in every field. They have been unapologetically Black for more than 150 years. For the first time ever, their story is told.

Written, directed and produced by award-winning documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson (The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution) and produced by Firelight Films, “Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities” examines the impact HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) have had on American history, culture, and national identity.

A free showing of the film “Tell Them We Are Rising” is offered:

  • Friday, February 23, 5:30 p.m.
  • South Broadway Cultural Center, 1025 Broadway Blvd SE
  • This event is FREE!
  • Please wear your favorite school or college paraphernalia.
  • If you are planning to attend, please email to RSVP no later than Feb. 16.
