A haven for Black intellectuals, artists and revolutionaries—and path of promise toward the American dream—Black colleges and universities have educated the architects of freedom movements and cultivated leaders in every field. They have been unapologetically Black for more than 150 years. For the first time ever, their story is told.

Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson, Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities examines the impact Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have had on American history, culture, and national identity.

«Robust and stirring.» Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

«Films such as this are essential, telling a deeper truth and inspiring further research.» John Fink, The Film Stage

«A vivid testimonial of the power of education.» Josh Terry
