Description

Tell Them We Are Rising by Stanley Nelson

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. The 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. The latest film from director Stanley Nelson, America's foremost film chronicler of the African-American experience, Tell Them We Are Rising brings to life the powerful story of the rise, influence, and evolution of HBCUs.

The City of Mesa Diversity Office hosts the Indie Lens Pop-Up! Film Series in conjunction with various producing partners.

Featuring documentaries seen on PBS's Independent Lens, Indi Len Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics, to family and relationships.
