Description

Join WMHT Public Media, The Albany Public Library, and community partners for a free Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of Tell Them We Are Rising, a film 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. 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.

Screening will be followed by a facilitated conversation. This event will be held in the auditorium of the library.

Snacks Provided.
