NPT Screening | Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities

A free and advance screening followed by a panel discussion.

Join NPT and Watkins College of Art for a free Indie Lens Pop-Up event featuring Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities. The screening takes place from 6pm to 8pm in the Watkins theater (the Watkins cafe will be open before the screening). The event is free, but reservations are required.

This documentary by Stanley Nelson and Marco Williams explores the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played over the course of 150 years in American history, culture and identity. Tell Them We Are Rising 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.
