Join us for our FREE screening of Tell Them We Are Rising in Ogden, presented in partnership by Utah Film Center and Peery's Egyptian Theater.

Directed by Stanley Nelson
85 min | 2017 | USA | Not Rated

Veteran filmmaker Stanley Nelson explores the previously untold story of Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The story of Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) began before the Civil War and influenced the course of our nation yet remains one of America’s most important untold stories. 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.

Film is free and open to the public. No tickets needed.
