TELL THEM WE ARE RISING, A DOCUMENTARY


Feeling Rebloggy 
Veteran Emmy winning documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson is set to premiere his next work, an ambitious two-hour documentary and multimedia project that explores the pivotal role Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played in American history, culture, and national identity.

An official selection of the Documentary Premieres program at the upcoming 2017 Sundance Film Festival which kicked off this week, the first ever project of its kind on HBCUs is titled “Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.” It features the voices, photos, letters, diaries, home movies and a variety of never before seen or heard media that reveal this important aspect of collective American History, via the many stories from HBCU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The documentary demonstrates how the 150-year history of HBCUs has influenced generations of Americans and shaped the landscape of the country.
