Indie Lens Pop-Up: "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities" -- Lincoln

Event Date and Time: 
Feb 22 2018 - 6:30pm
About this event

Tell Them We Are Rising explores the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played over the course of 150 years in American history, culture, and identity. This film reveals the rich history of HBCUs and the power of higher education to transform lives and advance civil rights and equality in the face of injustice. 

One of the challenges producer/director Stanley Nelson faced was there was no way to cover the over 100 historically Black institutions in 90 minutes.  So, Tell Them We Are Rising will feature an HBCU Digital Yearbook.
