Description

Join NPT and Watkins College of Art on Thursday, Feb. 8, 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 6 to 8 p.m. in the Watkins theater (the Watkins cafe will be open before the screening). The event is free, but RSVP is 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.

Independent Lens airs Mondays on NPT.
