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. 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. 5:30 PM Registration 6:00 PM Film Promptly Starts Space is limited -- RSVP by: Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 For questions about this event please email Nikisha Alcindor at nikisha.alcindor@columbia.edu.
