Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities (1308 hits)

Stanley Nelson, the preeminent storyteller of the African-American experience and Firelight Films, the award-winning production company committed to making films about pivotal events, movements, and people in American history, unveil a new full-length trailer for the upcoming documentary Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities. The trailer provides a fast-paced, rousing overview of the complex history of how HBCUs, havens for Black intellectuals, artists and trailblazers, offered a path of promise toward the American dream, educated the architects of freedom movements throughout the decades and cultivated leaders in every field.

The 90-minute film will air nationally on the acclaimed PBS series Independent Lens on Monday, February 19, 2018, 9 pm 10:30 pm ET (check local listings). The film will also be available for online viewing on PBS.org beginning February 20, 2018. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was recently presented at the New Orleans Film Festival, Indiana Black Expo, BlackStar Film Festival, NABJ Convention, National Action Network Convention, and the
African Diaspora Film Festival in Paris.

Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities is the second in a threepart
series called America Revisited that includes The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the
Revolution, which was the most watched Independent Lens program ever, and the forthcoming,
The Slave Trade: Creating A New World.
