Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities


Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Browning Cinema

As part of South Bend’s 32nd Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration and Notre Dame’s Walk the Walk Week, this screening will allow for a community exploration of the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played over the course of 150 years in American history, culture, and identity. Directed by documentary filmmaker and MacArthur Genius Fellow Stanley Nelson, the 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.
