WTTW, in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, presents a FREE screening and discussion of Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities.

Tell Them We Are Rising explores the pivotal role historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have played over the course of 150 years in American history, culture, and identity. This 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.
