Through archival footage and interviews with scholars and historians, Emmy-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson's "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities" explores the transformative role that HBCUs played in creating space and opportunity for black students and promoting pride and self-determination in the black community.

A free screening of "Tell Them We Are Rising" will be held Monday, January 29, at The Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue, as part of WXXI's Indie Lens Pop-Up Series in partnership with the Rochester Association of Black Journalists.
